How do you nurse a shipped plant back to health?

minami(6)July 10, 2013

I recently received plants in the mail, and all the leaves look pale yellow and wilted. Does anyone have any advice on nursing them back to health?

I think this plant will revive okay in a few days. You could trim the tips to the next node to stimulate new healthy growth.

Shipped plants often look droopy when you take them out of the box. Even so, they're not necessarily wilted. Things should soon look more normal.

Try to harden them up., by gradually introducing them to sun and other growing environmental conditions. .
