Greg does not have confirmed data on this plantÔÇÖs toxicity. If you, a family member, or a pet consumes plant material of unknown toxicity, itÔÇÖs always best to consult a medical professional.

If you or someone else ingested this plant, call Poison Control at US (800) 222-1222. If a pet consumed this plant, contact your veterinarian or the ASPCA at US (888) 426-4435.


­č¬┤ Soil

Dichtbl├╝tiges Leimkraut does best in well-draining soil. A good soil will contain lots of organic matter such as coco coir as well as perlite or vermiculite to help with drainage. Adding a handful of perlite to regular store-bought potting soil should do the trick!


­čĺę Fertilizer

Dichtbl├╝tiges Leimkraut should be repotted after it doubles in size or once a year, whichever comes first. Fresh potting soil has all the nutrients your plant needs, so as long as itÔÇÖs refreshed yearly, you shouldnÔÇÖt need to use fertilizer. Remember, plants get their energy from sunlight, not fertilizer!


­čžÉ Troubleshooting

When troubleshooting a sad-looking houseplant, start by checking for signs of distress in its leaves, such as yellowing, browning, or drooping, which can indicate overwatering or nutrient deficiencies.

Inspect the soil moisture; too dry or too wet soil can cause problems.

Ensure the plant is getting the right amount of light, as too much or too little can stress it.

Finally, consider environmental factors like temperature and humidity, and adjust care routines accordingly to revive your plant.
