My friend owns this plant and asked me to help with leaves that are turning brown and crunchy. I'm worried she may actually be watering it too much (once or twice a week), but neither of us can find its name to learn more about its care. I've searched online and through your identification page, but I can't seem to find a match. I have found similar color patterns, but the jagged leaves throw me off. Unless I am overlooking it on your site, I can't find an example of this anywhere online. Any help would be much appreciated!Read More
I got this dumb cane a few weeks ago. These little baby leaves at the bottom of the smaller stalks are turning yellow, some look faded and pale also, all the larger ones are health and green. I wait for it to dry before watering. It's in a west window with filtered light and seems to get plenty. Inspected for bugs and can't find any at all. What could the problem be?Read More
I have a cast iron plant that is not very hardy I would say, all the bottom leaves are gone and now is a long tall twig. What should I do? Do I cut it down to the base for it to start over? Do I try planting the top of the plant for it to grow?Read More

Hello Judy! I've just brought home a new indoor plant but can't seem to figure out what species it is. It has yellow mottling on the leaves which the previous owner assured me have always been present, but if this is a symptom of too much light/water/etc. of course I would like to know! Thanks for your help.Read More
