Ok, first of all, how dare you??

Last December, this strawberry was full of spider mites and begged for death, so I chucked it in the snow to grant a mercy killing. Gee, guess who's feeling better?

Outdoor reoccurring pests - how to avoid?

Like most plant lovers we bring our potted plants outside during the warmer months. However, the last few summers I’ve been battling spider mites that I thought just came from a single plant being a jerk and passing them onto the others. Last year I kept all potted plants inside and no mites. I’m realizing they’re actually coming from my mature Bradford pear trees (planted by the former owner) and possibly several smaller bushes I have in my yard. I really want to bring my plants out this year. Any advice on how to prevent the mites from taking over and hopefully from popping up at all this year? Hoping to get in front of it before it gets too warm.

Sad little China Doll

It would last a year they said. And now it’s looking dead. I’ve has this little guy in a cloche for about 3 weeks. Watered it as instructed in the base of the cloche.

What is happening here?? Is there hope?

I'm screwed trying beet

I tried to grow beets from cut tops. I guess half a dozen times. I never managed to get a decent growth above the ground, I don't know about tertiary roots because I wait till it rots. Please someone tell how can I succeed and what's going wrong. I want to grow one because I get that urge to see something positive after messing these many times(I hope it is what every amature gardener feels).....

How can I save her?

I was given this plant for free but I haven't had any luck on resuscitating it. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated! I only water once a week, and there's proper drainage. I've tried moving her around to different spots in the house (North, east, south facing windows). I'm so frustrated 😢

Spider plant - leaves always brown - why?

Hello all,

As with all my other plants, the tips of the leaves are always brown.

I don’t know why, and would really appreciate your help.

I’ve experimented with not watering and over watering and regular watering.

And - still - all my life - all my plants have brown tips.

For this Spidy, it’s possible that I put too much fertiliser in the soil. I used granular fertiliser. So it got super strong (the leaves are sooo much stronger - all the bends and breaks straightened out - and a darker colour) and spawned dozens of satellites. So I’m repotting this weekend with new compost.

Am asking about the brown tips as that’s a systemic problem, something I always do to my plants, and I think is separate to this isolated case of over- fertilisation.

Really appreciate your support.

I don’t know how to upload photos, happy to upload some if you guys can help me figure this out.

Thank you.

Asparagus fern - Kamakazi

Hello all,

I have an asparagus fern which keep having growth bursts while doing its best to die.

It keep turning yellow and brown and the brand new leaves and shoots keep dying.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s dry or wet. I’ve tried doing both.

Is it too warm? It was outside for a while, and seems to really appreciate being brought indoors- it had a huge growthspurt.

But since then, it keeps dying again.

I’d really appreciate your help.

Also, any suggestions about how to upload photos would be appreciated also.

Thank you.

Mould on hydrangea leaves - please help

I’d appreciate your help.

This plant has mould on the leaves.

I’d really like to save it.

It was a cutting from my dead parent’s hydrangea, so apart from the health of the plant, it has enormous sentimental value.

It is currently a patio plant. Its roots had been pot bound and I’ve just reported it.

Thanks.

Alocasia being a princess, presses against closed blinds and ignores grow light.

The blinds stay closed most of the time cause I live in a rough area. One solitary leaf will get so close to the grow light that it nearly burns and every single other leaf smooshes their face against the cold, closed blinds. Doesn't matter where I position the light, she keeps acting a fool.

She's finally starting to recover from being moved but she's being a complete princess about going toward the natural light. I'm convinced that one leaf is keeping the whole plant alive while the others have their prodigal's son era.
