  • Exploding Piles
    So I have this pilea and while there’s new growth in the middle, I find that the outside shoots end up drooping and dying and I have to remove them. Is this normal? Any tips? I water 1x week

      Paris Lalicata Hi Karly! It sounds like the Pilea isn't receiving enough light since it's developing new growth but dropping older leaves. This usually means the plant is only creating enough energy for a certain amount of leaves. Therefor, I would recommend increasing the plants exposure to light and you should start to see a huge difference! With increased light however, you may need to increase your frequency of waterings. As soon as the soil dries out completely it'll be ready for another watering!
  • Droopy Pothos
    Hi all, 
    bought this Pothos at the Sill a few months ago. It used to stand erect and a couple weeks ago I came home from a short vacation where I watered it before I left but not on it’s normal day, and I came back and it was droopy like this. I water once a week with a little bit of plant food. I know my Pothos will eventually grow into a vine so not sure if it’s growing downward or im doing something wrong. Advice appreciated!

      Paris Lalicata Hi Karly! So wilting is usually an indication of moisture stress, either over or under watering. Considering there aren't any yellowed leaves I'd say the plant is under watered, so I'd go ahead and give it a drink and allow excess to drain out. You'll want to give the plant a few days to perk back up depending on how long they have been drooping. Once the soil dries out completely, or when the plant begins to droop again it'll be time for another watering!
  • What kind of cactus is this?

      Paris Lalicata Hi [307330,Karly] ! This looks like a type of Hylocereus cactus to me- have you ever seen it produce white blooms? Or even fruit?
