A guide for my Plants

I keep a list of all my plants here. First because I can't remember what the names are. And second, because it makes it easier to figure out what I'm doing wrong when they get sick.

You can start one of your own for Free on CoKnown. Just click on the Login tab at the top of the page and sign up with your Facebook account.

Still working on this one

I think watering improperly has been the problem with this one.
Working towards hitting the right amount of watering in dry Colorado winters.
Checking it regularly now and watering it as soon as it drys out.
Seems to be doing better and starting to see new leaves growing.

Doing Much Better

Cut way back on watering this plant while it was recovering from pests.
Used alcohol to wipe down all the leaves and get rid of Spider mites and Scale.
Doing much better now.  The Pruning Way back suggestion was crap. Lost half the plant.

Starting to recover

Supposed to be a very easy plant to grow. Being a pain in the butt. The Grand Irony is they grow GREAT when you hang the roots in a fish tank.
Got one in a hanging pot that was fine for years. Then I started over watering it and almost killed it.
I think the big problem is it's in a hanging pot with No drainage. Very prone to root rot.
    I'm going to repot it - needs to have all the root rot removed. Also, I'm going to add an inch of gravel on the bottom for drainage.

This plant needs to be pruned Way Back when it's having issues. when it gets long vines with few leaves it's time to prune them back to the plant. Once they loose leaves they won't grow back. Blah!
