Can’t seem to find this plant online. Got it at my brothers funeral and am desperate to keep it alive. Half of it is dead? Not sure how that happened?Read More

I hate buying Christmas trees and throwing them out, so sad. This year I bought a "living Christmas tree" from the nursery. They said it was a Norfolk Pine but didn't really know how to care for it. Could you give me some advice on how I should care for it. Much appreciated... Dave Read More
Hi Judy, This plant is at my office. It sits on my desk under fluorescent light with a very high ceiling. It is also about 4 feet away from a window that faces southeast and gets lots of light. The plant was a vibrant green when I got it. Now it is faded and the leaves are yellowing and turning brown in spots. I only water it when the leaves just begin to droop. Thanks, SusanRead More

Hi Judy, A friend bought this at a bazaar and asked if I could help him identify it. I am not familiar with it and didn't find it in your photo gallery of popular houseplants. Any help you could provide would be appreciated. Thanks!Read More
Hello Judy, I recently became the new home of "Helen" the house plant. The woman who sold her to me said this plant is 45 years old. WOW! What is Helen? She needs to be repotted and I'm terrified to kill her from the shock of replanting. She is clearly very forgiving. She was in desprerate need of water too. She is getting greener now. She is jam packed in this pot. She also has sharp little thorns you cant see in the pic. Please help keep Helen goin another 45 years. Thankfully JT.Read More
This plant came from Home Depot, bundled up in a hanging basket with some succulents and other plants that like arid conditions. It is different. Can you help me find some info on this please? It has red/green stems and each stem has three little red leaves. I transplanted it into a big pot and it has taken off in the Hot Texas sun. Any info would be appreciated.Read More
