My daughter kills all the plants! 😭 This happened in only 5 days… teenagers, right?! πŸ˜‚ Any tips on how I can try to save her? She was confiscated and it’s now mine. Thank You!

Tell your teenager to download Greg haha. The leaves look pretty crispy, so it's probably under watered. It looks like there's a nursery pot the plant is sitting in. I recommend you take it out and give the plant a good soak, especially if the soil is really dry and becomes hydrophobic, you want to make sure the roots are deeply watered and drained away. Then put it back, find a good spot with bright light and hope for the best. Good luck!
I love the little pot and sorry your plant died. I have a small leaf wondering plant in a pot a bit similar and I find the drainage isn’t very good so I filled the bottom with little stones. 😊πŸͺ΄βœŒπŸΌ
Do you know if it was underwatered or overwatered?

That was probably a stupid question. My teenagers forget to water.

I'm worried that the roots may have been dry too long. Water it and wait. Get it in a humid spot or give it a pebble tray to help regulate the humidity.
@sarahsalith I’ve watered it myself because I know she won’t… I think is because she put it on her window and it was too hot. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ I watered it and moved to another place, it seems like there is one stem alive. Let’s see. 🀞🏻
@cpessoa I'm rooting for you!! πŸͺ΄
@Kanteen thank You! I watered last night but I will give it a good soak today. 🀞🏻
I think she’s slowly coming back.
