Ugh, I just can't grow house plants. Help with Orange Star!!!
So, because I was the garden lady and class mom in my son's preschool class, his teacher gave me an orange star plant. Actually, it had three plants in one little pot. Says keep in bright light (which is a problem in my house because of window placement), soil moist, and cool temps.
So, after a few weeks all of them are drooping. I had them in my kitchen window, hoping they would get enough sun. I put them out in the potting shed this weekend to get some extra sun, but none have perked up. So, today, I thought maybe the roots need more room and put each in their own pot. I have them on the floor (cause I know there's nothing cool about the temps in the potting shed) in front of the sliding glass door. Ugh! I have never had good luck with house plants. I don't have a window that gets a lot of sun. The sliding glass door (southwest facing) is the closest. but it is not a good permanent place, because the kids, dogs or myself are going to kick them over.
