It is worthwhile to clean your plant on a regular basis. This not only keeps it healthier, but it also encourages you to check in with your green gang to detect any signs of illness.
Dust on your plant's leaves prevents sunlight from reaching them, reducing growth. It can also clog the pores on the leaves, causing the plant to suffocate.
We recommend cleaning the leaves once a month with a damp cloth. A soft brush can be used to clean plants with fuzzy leaves. While you're at it, inspect your plant for any signs of stress or disease. If there are dead, brown, or yellowing leaves, gently remove them and trim brown leaf tips, being careful not to cut into the plant's healthy part.
If you think cleaning the leaves will take forever you can simply put your plant in the shower. To clean the leaves, use tepid water, being careful not to get the shower head too close to your plant, as the force of the water could upset it.
