What other plant parents say
I bought Neil via the Internet and he arrived in mediocre shape with a lot of crushed leaves and one stalk. He looked like he was making a decent recovery until my two usually well-mannered puppies dug him up out of the pot. It was a disaster and all but one stalk was damaged. Upon pruning the destroyed parts, I discovered he had small white webs forming everywhere. I washed him all over lightly with a very diluted dish soap. He is hanging in there and I’m shocked at how resilient he is. It’s going to be a long road but I’m hoping to help him recover and flourish.
