  • Dropping 3 Year Old Fiddle Leaf
    I have had this fiddle leaf for 3 years and she has been doing great until I recently repotted it and put rocks on the soil to make it more aesthetically pleasing. The leaves are drooping and dropping at the bottom and the new growth coming in from the top has brown spots on it. Could it be getting too much sun? Does it not like the rocks? Please help I have kept her alive for so long!

      Pei How is it doing now? FLF is famous for being a drama queen ;) They don't like any changes at all. It was likely shocked by the repotting I'd not worried too much.

      Side note, I highly recommend removing the pebbles. It's great for the aesthetic but not great for plants. For example, moisture will retain longer, hard to detect pests issues, etc. Hope this helps :)

      Paige Rose Shestak It may be root rot! I would let it dry out for two weeks and remove the browning leaves and make sure it gets plenty of sun!
  • Silly Question: Do I take green tie off Money Tree?
    Hello! I received a Money Tree from the Sill in the mail yesterday and was wondering if I should take the green string tie off...probably a silly question I know! additionally this plant looks very sad and the leaves are droopy. Any tips? Thank you!

      Eliza Blank Hi Kasey, it looks like your Money Tree suffered the same damage as the Philodendron you posted. Please see my other note!
  • Sad Philo Upon arrival
    Hello! I received this philodendron from The Sill yesterday and immediately unboxed it. To my sadness the leaves were really droopy and a dark brown color! I made sure to give it adequate sunlight and water it but is this plant too far gone or can I save it? Thanks!

      PlntNrd Did it take a couple of days to get to you and is it very cold where you are? It looks like it could possibly have some cold damage. Are the leaves crispy or kind of soggy/mushy? Definitely cut off the brown parts and see what/how much is left and make sure the base looks ok.

      Janine G Mine arrived the same way. I cut it down to nothing. Hoping it sprouts up again.

      Mallory How is the soil? You could try watering it from the bottom and seeing how the plant reacts. I juts rehabed a droopy pothos with completely dried out soil this way and it perked right up!
