Sometimes, plants attract pests. Apply pesticides but preferably natural ones. Although indoor plants do not require direct sunlight, but make sure they get at least bright natural light. Please, dont forget to sprinkle water twice a day for terrace plants. In case of potted plants, allow excess water to run out from the bottom of the pot into a saucer placed below. Allow it to be a common practice that plants should be pruned occasionally to remove damaged parts and to help fresh growth. Make it a point that plants should never be permitted to wither. You can also cover the top layer of the soil with mulch (decaying leaves, bark or compost, spread around or over a plant to enrich or insulate the soil), containing wooden pieces, twigs, dead plant leaves etc. It will not only provide extra fertilizer for the soil, but will also help retain moisture. Small pebbles may also be used to cover the soil from losing moisture. Sometimes, to make the leaves shine, wipe it with a soft, damp cloth.
