The roots are the lifeline for the plant. They supply needed moisture and nutrients for the leaves to produce food during photosynthesis.
They also store energy and food for the plant. They provide stability.
Plants grow in a balanced way, as they make new roots, new leaves form. If roots are not encouraged to grow, no new foliage will occur. In 90 percent of cases, plant failure can be attributed to lack of healthy roots or to root damage. Roots can be damaged in many ways: roots suffocate in soggy compacted soil, roots die if the soil is too dry for too long, disease, etc.
The secret to healthy plants is a light, soil less potting mix to encourage actively growing roots!
Indoor plants are tropical plants and require a different soil than in the ground here in Boston, MA . Commercial “potting soil” is ordinarily unsuitable for indoor plants. It is not reliably sterile (causing diseases and even sometimes weeds) and is too dense. The dense nature of most commercial potting soils keep roots too wet for long periods and do not encourage good root growth.
