What other plant parents say
I don’t know if this plant is going to survive. I love the flowers, but she keeps wilting or getting root rot. Either too little or too much water. I have two of these guys. Both are not very happy at the moment. I gave up and moved one outside. Maybe Mother Nature can do a better job. 😞
