If you’ve been noticing that your Ikea houseplants are starting to turn yellow, don’t worry – you’re not alone. This is a common problem with these plants, and there are a few things you can do to remedy it.
If the yellowing is occurring even though you’re following these steps exactly, you could be dealing with root rot or a fungal disease (both common problems for Ikea plants). In either case, the plant will need to be repotted in fresh soil and you may need to treat the soil with a fungicide.
If your plant is losing its leaves, it could be due to a number of things, including dry air, pests, or a lack of nutrients.
If that doesn’t work, consider moving your plant somewhere with lower lighting or increasing its humidity. It’s possible that the plant just isn’t suited for your current environment and you’ll need to find a new home for it.
Remedies for Ikea plants turning yellow:
-Water plants until water drains from the pot and wait for the top few inches to dry out before watering again
-Repot in fresh soil
-Treat soil with fungicide
-Mist leaves with water
-Give the plant a half-strength dose of liquid fertilizer every time you water
-Move the plant to a location with lower lighting or increase humidity
