I have a beautiful Cheese plant approx 4ft high and for the past few years grew leaves every day - it was so healthy. It is in a bright room, no direct sun but nicely warm and this week it has lost approx 4 leaves each day. Should I withhold water (its quite dry). Also have some Ficus that supposedly like water, should I stop for the winter. They are very healthy and in a nice bright room and nicely warm.
I moved the Philodendron Xanadu to the front porch of my house which is enclosed and it is doing much better and I will move it indoors completely soon. It gets tiny aphids mainly on the back of the leaves. I have sprayed it with a house plant pest spray containing fatty acids its (been in the garage a long time perhaps it's gone off.")as they seem to keep coming back. Can you reccommend a treatment please?
I have a healthy Swiss cheese plant, but the leaves have started weeping. Looks like little drops of water, but when it falls on my wooden floor it leaves a permanent stain. I know the leaves are poisonous and I have a cat. Is there anything I can do to prevent this?
What is the best way to treat this plant to help it flower again next season. It has such a gorgeous intricate tiny flower and really lovely foliage that I'd love to keep it growing. At the moment the one stem is lovely and thick and solid. I am not watering it since the flowers died back. But is there any particular care I should be giving it?
I have a young philodendron xanadu plant which is not doing so well. Some of the leaves are a bit yellow at the edges and distorted. I fed it and watered it and gave it a slow release fertilizer tablet. I had it indoors but put it outside in a shady sheltered spot in the garden for the summer. I moved it into the glass house but perhaps it will be too sunny there. Any advice? Thanks.
