Is he a goner?
Back from vacation to find a completely wilted, deflated, and sad #PurpleWafflePlant 😒. I watered him and put him back on his shelf. He’s not really perking up yet. Is he salvageable? Anything else I can do to resuscitate him? #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #PLANTMAFIA #PlantTherapy #WafflePlant πŸ’€ 🌱
0ft to light, indirect
4” pot with drainage

I'm so sorry. If the roots are okay, your plant can recover. It will take patience.
Don’t toss him just yet. I had the same thing happen to one of my leafy plants after being away. Monday he looked like yours. Today he has some new leaves coming in and I cut back all the dead leaves and stems.
Thanks @sarahsalith @Hypsie. Think I should cut back the leaves and stems and see what happens?
@EagerPhlox I'd leaf it alone for a bit. They will fall away when they are totally spent.
I hope your plant improves.
@Pegster thanks! Me too. It hasn’t improved so far but im not giving up yet
They are survivors! Mines wilted a million times and bounced back each time
