How to revive lavender? Starting to droop no matter how much/little sun or water it gets
#EnglishLavender
3ft to light, indirect
4” pot without drainage
Last watered 4 months ago
I guess drooping is better than browning- that's what I did to my lavender. I know it should outside if you can do it. I know it is similar to ivy and aloe in that they don't want to be overwatered. In my experience, lavender doesn't forgive once it's overwatered.

It might also take a few weeks for it to show progress once you change its care.

How long have you had it?
I’ve had it for about a month now and been following the care guide from the greenhouse to water it once a week till the soil is moist , it’s just been very cloudy or rainy so I’ve kept it inside and only placed it outside the days we had sun. Just haven’t had a lot of it, and Google said to place it in direct sunlight until it revived
What kind of soil is it in? Lavender likes almost sandy soil, that drains really well
@Stardusthipster I just got regular planter pot soil from the garden centre, they never mentioned anything about a sandy soil I’ll have to try that next and see how that helps. Thanks for the helpful tip I appreciate it!
@CashewGodess anytime! I hope it helps!
