Step 1: #1 Feed Them

Water your plants at least one time per week or according instructions received when you bought the plant. Feed them with fertilizer if necessarily. For some plants, like cactus, is no need to water them so often.

So, read about your plant and feed her properly.

Step 2: #2 Plow Their Land

Keeping the land "fluffy" helps your plants to extend their roots and grow in size. This will help plant grow bigger. Another reason is that it prevents the emergence or proliferation of plants pests.

You can use special tools for plowing or even a spoon will be enough to turn around the land. In some cases you can use pesticides against pests (personally I don't like to use them).

Remove all foreign weeds otherwise they will invade your plant(s) and finally can kill her.

Step 3: #3 Support Them

In case you are growing plants which has that interesting habit of climbing, you have to prepare supports for them. A good example will be a small ladder. Or even just a piece of rope secured between two fixed points. In this way your plant will have a nice support and she will be happy to use it. For smaller size plants you can use only a stick.
