I am pretty pathetic with any plant, but if my normal care doesn't kill it a transplanting usually does it in. If I need to transplant can you walk me through this a little? What would be the best type of soil, and does it need to be a deep pot, or maybe more of a shallow but wider one?
It does seem to be attracting fruit flies, is there a remedy for this? We have cups of vinegar and soap nearby to help with that, but there are still some around. I spray it occasionally with an insecticidal soap, but don't want to overdo it. I have a hanging plant of some variety, but I haven't seen any fruit flies congregating around that.
