  • Pot qualities

Although you start from a small plant, it grows faster and requires a bigger pot later if you grow them in soil. 

In the case of water, it is better to use transparent glass pots to check the health of the roots and bottom stem of the plant.

  • Without proper ventilation, the plant starts to get dry, despite providing it fresh water for a certain period.
  • The appearance of white and yellow spots(sometimes brown and black) on green leaves.
  • Fading of green leaves for all day.
  • Impact of humidity and high temperature on plants.
  • Unusual use of fertilizers and chemical pesticides by misleading.
Now, let's understand how to prevent and handle these challenges and mistakes-
  • Provide all the plants proper ventilation inside the room. You can keep them near a window with ventilation. 
  • From outside your room, don't let them in direct sunlight for more than 4 hours, especially in the afternoon time.
  • If your plants getting unwanted spots on leaves, you can cut those portions or check the pH of the water. If pH is below 6.9 or more than 7.1 then change that water with a pH range of 6.9 to 7.1.
  • If the money plant is getting dry, then feed a new cutting inside your glass pot with existed one. You can change the pot with a bigger one and let both plants grow at the same time. Despite, if you are not satisfied with it,  you can plant a cutting in a new pot and it will grow till the existing plant will get totally dry.

For those people who want it to grow only just for decoration, they can use designer points, with lighting. Because the money plant is a vine plant, it is easy to fold or move its flexible stem.  But this kind of arrangement or decoration asks for a more secure and gentle work with money plant in starting stages.
