    Water less

    Plants like humidity, generally. Raise the humitidy around your plants to help them stay healthy in the winter.

    Or, you could store your plants in a well list bathroom.

    Turn your plants

    Everytime you water your plants turn them a quarter clockwise, so they each part of the plant can get sun.
