streptocarpella .. can mine be saved???
ok .. today i read a bit about this lovely plant which i have had for about two months. i realize that i have been torturing it (which you would instantly guess upon seeing it!) i now better understand that i have to fertilize it monthly, water from the bottom so the leaves dont get wet and keep it dry between waterings (only once a week, they say).
the question i have is ... can i cut all the stems back (how far, i wonder?) because it has lost all its leaves except the ones on the very top of each branch? the leaves that were there were brown and dead. i did cut them off (no easy matter as there are a million on each branch!) but its still pathetic :-(
can you help me bring this lovely plant back to its beautifully flowering state? how shall i prevent those crispy leaves from returning? what to do .. what to do .. help save my streptocarpella, please!
