Hey Y’all my plant baby is dying on me… 😢please I need help
Please help me. I really want my plant to thrive. It was green and blossoming when I purchased it. I’ve tried adding organic fertilizer to the soil, disease stopping spray and an insecticide. Please anyone with insight help me.
What are you watering it with? Some plants are highly fussy about water pH
I get water from the tap. Although I started adding this (see attached photo) to the water to supply nutrients.

Its leaves turn brown. Leaves also brown if you give your corn plant too much water, and you'll see leaf-tip browning if you forget to water for a few weeks. Corn plants love humidity, so you might spray the leaves with water or place the container on a large dish with pebbles and a little water.

I just use regular tap water on mine. But everyone’s water is different. So it may be sensitive to your water.
Can we see the roots? These guys like to dry OUT. Like 10 days with no water dry out or they do this
I recently read about corn plants and this issue. It very well could be over fertilized. They can’t take much. It was suggested to flush the soil with distilled water.
Thank you all so much. I’m planning on repotting. However, something similar is happening to my ficus I bought around the same time.
