I bought these plants. . . All I know is that they are house plants. they are dying. What can I do to bring them back to life? But I don't miss treat them i have had them for about two months now. I water them in the morning, because i read that it is better to water them in the morning. I put them near the window for sunlight but I never open thr window, because i read that they can die if they get a draft. I temp. of the soil is 67 degrees because i read about plants liking the soil temp at 67 degrees to 75 degrees on this website! Please, I don't want to fail,Someone must know something that can help!!!!!

How often are you watering? Over-watering kills more houseplants than anything else. I'm pretty mean to mine and they are lucky to get a drink about once a month.

RE: help

Marion, obviously there is something that you are doing wrong. It is very difficult to give a houseplant the exact care that it needs without knowing what kind it is. Luckily, most (but not all) plants are pretty easy going.

They will rebel at being over or under watered, over fertilized, being placed in cold or hot drafts, some are sensitive to a very low humidity, etc.

Perhaps you can work on a good description of your plants and then post that and your question in the Houseplant Forum. Better yet, a picture!
