Hi Judy, I live in Florida and purchased a plant called Lipstick Plant. It is supposed to get red flowers that resemble lipstick. I've had the plant for about 6 months and so far no flowers. It's in a hanging basket and the stems and leaves are dark green and beautiful. Are you familiar with this plant as far as flowering?Read More

I purchased a hanging basket of Fittonia from Home Depot 8 months ago. I have it hanging in my bathroom. When purchased it was " fat and full " now it has become long and leggy. Not the beauty it used to be. How do I fix it?? Prune it back? If so how far? Leaves at the top of stems but rest of stems are bare. Help please.Read More
I got this plant from a stranger essentially, initially did well but I'm having some issues and would like to know what it is. Recently a lot of leaves are turning yellow and falling off and then some of the stalks keep breaking off at the base. I did not think I was watering it too much but perhaps there is some root rot. I could really use your help figuring out what this plant is so that I can take care of it properly and save it. Thank youRead More
