I am a resident of South India and I live in an apartment with tw
balconies, one facing the east and the other facing the west. I hav
quite a number of plants in my two small balconies. I use plasti
containers and water daily in our humid region. I apply organi
fertilizer every other week. But my plants rarely produce flowers. Som
just wilt and die. Others have large leaves but no flowers. Some hav
smaller than normal leaves or yellow leaves. I have found that ther
are numerous tiny snails in the soil. Can anyone please tell me what
am doing wrong?
Thank you in advance for your help.
Try taking the plants indoor to see if that helps, it may be the
environment rain water ?
Find the plants you have and find their individual care needs. It might
help to group them to similar care. Each plant has different care
needs. Some need to be watered weekly while others need less. Some
plants need drainage and too much water will make fungus grow and
Go to http://plantcare.com/ and find your plants.

Sounds like you are overwatering most of your plants. Like the
previous responder said different types of plants require different
watering schedules. Also, different types of pots tend to dry out
quicker or slower. Plastic pots tend to hold moisture in longer and
your watering every day is causing an overly wet root environment.
This would be fine if you were growing something like taro or papyrus.
Also different plants require different fertilizer.
One of the common mistakes of beginning gardeners is killing the
plants with too much love by overwatering and over fertilizing and by
lumping all the plants together in regards to care.
