    Starting your plant parenthood journey can be scary, but fret not! Here are a few extra tips I've picked up that might help your plants grow up happy and happy:

    - Overwatering can be just as bad as underwatering! Desert plants, like cacti and succulents, prefer a drier environment, while tropical foliage prefers a moist, humid environment.

    - Try to keep your plants away from drafts, especially if you're opening your windows overnight. Rapid fluctuations in temperature can cause plants to majorly stress out, leading to leaf loss or, in some cases, freezing in the cold.

    - Not all soils are suited to all plants, so investing in a good fertilizer is a great way to correct acidity and give your greenery the food and nutrients it needs to grow up big and strong.

    - Yes, bugs can be a problem β€” even indoors! Check leaves, stems, and roots for infestation regularly, so you can catch those pests before they do any real damage.

    - Plants are like people. They have bad days, too! Don't panic if your new fiddle leaf fig sheds its leaves or your orchid stops blooming β€” with sunlight, water, and a little TLC, there's a good chance it'll bounce back!

    - When choosing plants, it's good to factor in your lifestyle. Do you have pets? Are there kids in the house? Some plants are toxic to animals or are extremely sensitive to being touched and tugged, so finding the right plant for your home is key.

    - When in doubt, start off with a spider plant. These guys are nearly impossible to kill, can thrive in just about any kind of light, and are air-purifying powerhouses.

    That's it! Now grow forth and prosper!
