Horty Hints

Less is more! Black patches on leaf edges can be a result of overwatering. Allow the plant to almost dry out before watering again.

Time to trim! When pruning plants, disinfect the pruners regularly to prevent disease. Remove long, unwanted leaves at the stem.

Losing the leafage! Rapid leaf loss can occur when relocating the plant. Allow it to settle for a few weeks, and if things don’t pick up, it could be a watering or temperature issue.
