So I thought I would try my hand again at growing a plant after a few years (I'm really starting to accumulate a house plant body count at this point). I purchased this plant from Home Depot and I have no clue what it is, but the stems have seemed to gone dry and crispy in only 1 week. A friend (who knows what she is doing) potted it for me and told me to water it, and I thought I did a really good job. I've used indirect light and my plan was to water it really well once a week (past plant deaths have mostly had to do with over watering).
Is my plant doomed at this point?? Please let me know if I can save it. Thanks!
It doesn't look that bad in the picture--could just be a little bit of transplant shock. When you repot things, the roots will get damaged a little bit and that can cause the plant to wilt a bit initially. Your soil looks really wet though--are you sure you're not still overwatering? Also a couple other things to check...does the pot have drainage holes? And if it does have drainage holes and you've got it sitting in a saucer to catch excess water, make sure you empty the saucer after you finish watering.
I watered it last Sunday (a week ago) and again today which is how I noticed the stems and why the soil is damp. It's a clay pot with drainage holes and I made sure it was draining as it should. I let the excess water drain into the sink for about an hour before I put it back on it's saucer. I just hope that the stems aren't dry all the way through with no hope for recovery.
