Need help identifying and caring for houseplants? Email your photos and questions to me and I'll get back to you ASAP. The truth is, I need your help too! If everyone using my website chipped in $3 (or more if you could), we'd be able to keep Houseplant411 online, solving your questions, and providing plant information for another year.   I will be on a Cultural Exchange program to Cuba for the next 10 days. Very slow or non-existent  internet! Please be patient & I will answer your questions as soon possible. Thanks!

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.
