Some months ago I noticed my philodendron, which I inherited from my grandmother in 1981, was losing leaves at an alarming rate. It was in a huge pot sitting in water. I tried drying it out, but it still appeared sick. I just moved it from a northern window to a southern window, which gets more sun. Now it is near a healthy younger plant on the left. I am afraid to water it and afraid to repot. Please help. Here it is in photo on the right. And another when I just moved it.Read More

Bought this for my mom for 10 years now. At one time, green leaves were almost dark red like its underside. Will this thing flower? Very difficult to take cuttings and get roots but I was lucky once. Thanks..Read More
Hi, Judy A friend gave me a snippet of a plant she had in her office. It makes berries starting out green, turning yellow then red. I attached a picture. I am wondering what plant it is and is it best to root it in water or put directly in soil. Thank you for your help. LoriRead More

Hello, can you tell me the name of my plant? Thank you.Read More
I purchased this money tree about 2 weeks ago. I've watered it twice. I read you should spray it daily with water which I do. Some of the leaves have brown spots, some have holes, some are limp and appear to be dying. Please, what am I doing wrong and how can I help this plant thrive? Thank you so much for your time.Read More
My wife saw a plant called a Joseph's Coat and really liked it. I was hoping to get her one for Valentines Day. Are they hard to care for? Do you know where I can get one?Read More
I recently bought this trailing plant but I've been through several identification guides and I can't figure out what it is. If you could help, I would greatly appreciate it. The leaves are thin and papery, purple underneath.Read More
