I have a question about Calathea pinstripe care, as I've been considering one but want to make sure the conditions are right. My office has floor-to-ceiling windows along the entire SW side, so lots of light, but my desk is about 9 feet from the windows. Assuming that I keep the plant on my desk, do you think that's enough light for it?
Hey all. I want to transport my pothos - it's in a closed pot at my office and I want to transport the plant (in an open box, probably on a bus or in a cab) back to my house to put it in the new pot. Then I'll take it back.
My question: it's started to grow some really nice vines. They're not overly long, but by transporting them do I run the risk of breaking them off?
It's doing pretty good in the closed pot, I just really prefer something with drainage and have already bought a new pot for it.
I know Alocasia love humidity, so I bought a mini humidifier and was using it daily on the play for about 5 days. Suddenly a leaf developed the markings above. I'm concerned it's fungus or mold - what do people think? And what should I do, if anything?
This plant is in my office. I can tell the maintenance guys overwater it. It was looking pretty grim until I fertilized it at the same time I was fertilizing my desk plants - it perked up and now it looks a lot better. What is it? Maybe I can take care of it on the sly.
I posted pics of my bitten-up Alocasia leaves yesterday (which stands next to this pothos) and it was suggested spider mites. I didn't see webs, but I treated with alcohol and removed two leafs anyway.
Today, I took a closer look at my pothos and discovered that many leaves have similar bites. I see no webbing but I sprayed the underside with alcohol anyway.
Does anyone have any alternate theories as to what could be eating this plant? Should I keep treating with alcohol or something else?
hey all! I got this 4-5 inch Alocasia Polly from the Sill about 3 months ago, I love her. I noticed when I got her that some of her leaves are a bit beat up, little tears and holes here and there - she came that way so it's nothing I've done.
Is this OK? Anything I should be aware of or do? I've just started fertilizing. Maybe this is just the way the plant is. I just wanted to check and make sure it's healthy.
I got a new neon pothos from the Sill. There were a few "stems" in there - appeared to be cut stems with leaves on top that were not rooted and falling out. Not attached to a root at all. I put these back into the soil and packed them in. My question - will they grow roots and become part of the plant? Or eventually die? Seems like the plant had a rough delivery... Sorry I don't have a pick; I don't want to un-plant them. (There were no nodes on these stems).
