  • My aloe was over watered?
    ok so my husband kills my plants. This aloe had big luscious thick full arms and then I think he overwatered it and now it’s got sad skinny arms and he color isn’t good. I took it out of the pot and tried to cut off the rotted roots and then added sand to the soil in hopes of saving it. Can it be saved? Can it find it’s think lusciousness again or is it a lost cause?

      Paris Lalicata hi [307995,Keri] ! Have you checked the soil? The symptoms the Aloe is displaying actually appears to be drought symptoms- but then again it's hard to tell. I would say the best thing to do moving forward is to check the soil, and if it has dried out completely I would go ahead and give the Aloe a drink. As long as it wasn't overwatered and developed root rot it should bounce back just fine! After replenished with consistent care it should plump back out and green up within a month or so :)
  • My dying plant?
    Not sure what this plant is but I had reported it into a bigger pot and it was thriving. Then something happened. My husband may have overwatered I am not sure. I put a little sand in the soil to try to save but it only seems worse. 1. What is the plant 2. Is it saveable 3. How should I take care of it?

      Paris Lalicata Hi Keri! So from the photo provided it looks like this may be a Philodendron hope. The yellowing of the leaves could be a sign of moisture stress (over or under watering). I'd make sure the plant is exposed to plenty of bright indirect light as it doesn't respond very well to low light. Based on the light provided you'll want to adjust your waterings accordingly. If the plant is exposed to a lot of light and taking up water frequently you may want to water when the top 2-3 inches to half the soil has dried out. Whereas if it was getting slightly lower levels of light then I would recommend watering when the soil has dried out completely! There's a chance the plant will be able to bounce back, especially since I can see new growth that hasn't unfurled yet. Therefor I would monitor its health closely in the road ahead.. it should slowly be able to bounce back :)
