This plant was given to my family when my mom passed away almost 25 years ago. The past couple of years, my mother in law was caring for it and we just got it back. Well now it doesn't seem to be doing well. I really don't even know what kind of plant it is to even begin figuring out what I need to do. Please help!Read More
Hi, this was a gift from a teacher; I would like to keep it in my room. But I don't know what kind of plant it is or it's name. Although I was given instructions on how to take care of it, I would like to know how to properly care for it. Never had a home plant.Seems to have a vine like body. But it's currently in a small pot. I was told to give it little light; half a cup of water each week. Parts of the leaves shimmer when light is flashed on. Seems like it's glitter like, but overall a semi dark green color.Read More

I'm moving to another state and can't take my huge indoor umbrella plant with me. It's about 8 feet high and 3 feet wide. It's 25 years old and beautiful with some large leaves. I'd like to take a piece off and root it and take it with me. A friend is taking my plant for me. Where is the best place to cut it to get a piece and what is the best way to root it. The bottom of the tree is brown bark, but there is new growth at the top which is green. I've cut this back many times, but never tried to root it. Please help. I love this plant.Read More
We adopted a very large plant from the previous homeowners and have no idea what it is or how to take care of it. We did trim it back some and re-potted to make it more manageable. She had it for 30 years, I'd hate to inadvertently kill it now. Thanks for your help!Read More

I have rescued these plants from a eviction in our neighborhood. They were left by the trash cans to be thrown away. I have no idea what kind they are or really how to care for them. Can you help me to identify them so that I can take care of them properly. Thanks. GinaRead More
