  • Rattlesnake
    Hey Plant People!<br><br>My Calathea Rattlesnake has slowly started to take a turn for the worst. Many of the tips of the leaves are brown. Some of the edges are also yellow/brown and the smaller leaves on the bottom of the plant are worse still. I’ve removed the worst leaves and moved my plant to a room with less direct light. Any advice is appreciated!

      Paris Lalicata Hi Sarah! It looks like the plant could be displaying symptoms of overwatering - if the plant is in a low light setting then it'll be best to allow the soil to almost dry out between waterings. If it's in moderate-bright conditions then it'll be best to re-water once about half the soil dries out, and best to provide some level of humidity. Any damaged leaf edges can be pruned back to shape - the plant should be able to make a comeback in no time!
  • Sad Little Fern
    Help! I over watered my fern a few weeks ago. It hasn’t been the same since. All of the new growth leaves turned yellow and fell off. It also looks like the center of the plant is trying to push up out of the soil. It is sitting currently in my brightest window. Advise is much appreciated!

      Paris Lalicata Hi Sarah! Considering you mentioned the plant was previously overwatered I would give it a little time to bounce back. Giving it plenty of bright indirect light and allowing the soil to dry out between waterings will be the best bet- or you can water once the plant starts to droop. As long as you maintain the right balance of care moving forward the plant should continue to thrive and develop new growth!
