Hello! I purchased this plant a week or two ago at my local supermarket. The tags only said it was a "tropical" plant. If possible I'd like your help so I can take care of it properly. I was also wondering if the red on the stock was normal. Thank you.Read More

The leaves have sort of brownish red colored spots on the leaves (like in the middle and towards the tips) and some white matter on the spots. What can I do for the plant.Read More

I have an Umbrella Plant that I take care of at work. When my boss thinks it is getting too tall he wacks it down some.
