Leggy Fittonia

posted by: giselle9 on 09.19.2013 at 07:14 pm in House Plants Forum

Hello,

I have a lovely Fittonia which has become leggy, I guess I haven't pinched it enough. It's near an east window so it gets some morning sun. What does one do with an already leggy Fittonia to make it bushier or look less leggy (if possible)?

Thank you!

Fussy Calatheas

posted by: giselle9 on 09.19.2013 at 07:42 pm in House Plants Forum

Hello,

I am having some trouble with fussy calatheas. I have a dottie, ornata, and rosy roseopicta. I keep them next to a closed east terrace door, away from direct sun, on humidity trays (not sitting in the water) and keep the soil a little moist. I ordered them online and have had them for about 1 month. They arrived stressed, I had to cut several leaves off them. Despite taking the care mentioned, I am getting a combination of dry dark edges / spots, some curling on the edges, yellowing edges, and color fading on the tips. I have only one new leaf grow on the ornata and as it is still rolled, it is growing in dry/withered/light brown. What does that mean?

Is there something I'm not doing correctly?

Also, when you cut an ugly/dying leaf, you cut as close to the soil line as possible?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
giselle9
