Repot & Rescue Day - Part 2, My New Rescues! 😍πŸͺ΄πŸ’š

I found this poor, wilted #Peperomia for $4 including the terra cotta pot; a dry, but still pushing #NewGrowth #Dieffenbachia for $2; and a curling #GoldenPothos with a hanging pot for $6!! 😱🀯

To say I’m excited about my finds today would be an understatement πŸ˜‚

Good luck with your new friends!
Goodluck! πŸ’•
Oh, I would love to see the after Pics...
@Yahsheba well, that first and second photo is the before and after for the dieffenbachia! But I’ll post photos of how the others look today, because they’ve definitely improved! 🀩
Here’s the peperomia and the pothos πŸ₯°πŸͺ΄
Wow great plant rescuing! I hope I could do the same to my struggling plants. Care to share how you took care of these @saatwood ? Thanks in advance :)
@DollDevilsclub sure thing! I usually cut off any dead/super damaged leaves and water everything thoroughly. I’ve noticed that most plants from big box stores are dry and under watered! Then I find a spot for them with the light they need, away from my other plants (it’s important to quarantine them in case they have some kind of pest). Then I wait a day or so to check on them and figure out what else needs to be done from there. The majority of my rescues perk up after getting the water they need. I hope this helps you with your own rescue plant babies! πŸͺ΄πŸ’š
Thanks for explaining throughly @saatwood. Appreciate it!
I think my issue comes down to incorrect lighting..
I always check potting mix to make sure it's well draining. . But my plants always suffer from incorrect soil moisture (tend to get retain water leading to root rot) even if I use a soil moisture meter.
