I had a friend "babysit" my Philodendron for a year at her house. When she returned it to me it is filled with tons of scale. Someone told me to use rubbing alcohol on the stems and leaves. It seems that will take forever. Our house is on the cold dark side and we are heading in to winter....what do you recommend? Thank you, StacyRead More
When we first got this plant, it did great for 2 months. It sprouted new growth, and they grew inches by the day. Then all of a sudden the new growth turned yellow as did one or two if its established leaves as well. We love this plant and it has sentimental value too. Please help identify the plant and provide advice on how to make it fell better!Read More
