At a basic level, you need to check that your plant has the right light, the right fertilizer and the right amount of water.

Some plants need more light than others, so if your plants are not growing, check to see if their variety needs more or less light.

Almost all plants need nutrients, but some need more than others and different kinds. Check if the plant needs fertilizer to provide these nutrients.

All plants need water, but too much or too little water can stunt or even kill a plant. Is your plant getting enough water or not? Is it drowning or dying of thirst?
