Oregano failing - what have I done

marathonwomanNovember 21, 2009

Eek. I left town for 2 days and now the oregano in my enf is dying off in parts. It is a fairly new plant (not fully grown yet). It seemed to perk up when I first watered it on my return, but has since become unhealthy looking. I don't think I over-watered it (overcompensated?) as the chives and basil that are growing in the same tray are fine (relatively - these are my lazy droopy chives). Any suggestions on what I should do to help the poor plant along?

Oregano can't stand "wet feet". It is a Mediterranean plant and is not used to wet conditions, which is why - in my opinion - an enf system may not be the best option for Oregano.
Let the plant dry out a bit, then consider transplanting it in a passive wick system.
