Also harsh sunlight can cause damage to the foliage. • Putting or sprinkling water on leaves or flowers will cause them to catch fungus infection. Avoid this at all times. Give water to soil only. • Even if the plant does not outgrow the current pot, and repotting is not required, renew the soil with some vermicompost every two years or so. This will keep the plant healthy. • Remove & discard dead, infected or damaged plant parts whenever required.
