Can I save my plant?
I’ve got this plant as a gift but I’m not a plant person. It’s been a while since I took care of it and just noticed today that all the leaves are getting so dry and yellow. I keep it next to the window so it gets indirect sunlight. Any advice on how I can save it?

Zebra plant known as a survivors plant hope you save her and Welcom to Greg @Nasma πŸ’šπŸͺ΄
@vvvelo can you help her?
It looks pretty tight in that pot. I’d upgrade a size with cactus/succulent potting soil. You can also take a pair of tweezers to remove those browning leaves. Otherwise it looks very healthy.
This plant looks super healthy! It can definitely be saved.

The good news about plants like this is they can take quite a bit of neglect.

Water whenever the soil is reallllly dry and you have a happy plant for a while to come!
I don’t see any issues here. It looks fine.
@Superkma75 I was actually wondering whether I should upgrade the size of the pot. Thanks for the advice :)
@AHassona Thank you! 🀍
@RJG Glad to hear! Thanks for the advice
@Nasma of course! Welcome to Greg! I may be biased but I think it's the best plant community on the internet
@RJG Thanks :)
It definitely looks like it
Your haworthia is beautiful. This plant likes indirect light and not much water. You are doing the correct things. Some of the babies could be put in separate pots. Welcome to Greg. 😊
@Pegster Good to hear 😊
Thanks a lot!
Yeah, a few dry fronds now and then are normal - just trim them off! Everyone needs a prune from time to time. Be careful not to overwater and you’ll be fine!
