Is this to be expected? It's been getting worse slowly throughout the day.
Hey @FerretWrangler As long as you haven't and don't add anything at all to her she will recover. Concentrate on letting her dry out properly between waterings and don't ph your water just use tap water that's been left out over night for the time being
The older leaves won't recover but the new growth should show positive signs in 7-10 days, water usage will be minimal to zero over the next couple of weeks so be extremely cautious
I can't shake the feeling that something else is going on here.
Hey @FerretWrangler I feel your pain my friend
The new growth looks fine. Resist the urge to do anything. Allow her to gain strength and grow some fine roots, she'll be fine don't stress about the older dying leaves there's nothing you can do to bring them back.
Let her do the work, now you've provided a great medium let her grow into it. She'll be good in a week
Oh good, I keep stressing, every time I check she looks worse, but I suppose those leaves were on their way out anyways. After I watered her in I haven't added anymore or fed, she's at 7/10 wet, and drying.
Hey @FerretWrangler any update on her?
Her light is off right now @Sunshine As soon as it comes on I'll post a pic. Most of those ugly leaves dried out and curled all the way up so I got rid of them. She still has a few leaves on their way out but the new growth looks fine. I haven't been tucking because she's growing kinda slow and she doesn't need more stress.
@Sunshine some leaves that were unaffected are going bad.
That one fan leaf with spots that's curling up just started looking bad yesterday.
Unfortunately until she recovers from the transplant some of the leaves will continue to die off.
When she's down to about 5 on the dry scale give her a good soaking she should start to look better a few days after that
How dry is she now?
@Sunshine 4-5 at root level, and 7 at the very bottom of the pot.
Have you only watered her in/once since the repot?
If so I'd give her another good watering with plain water then monitor her for the next few days
Yes, only the one time after the transplant, how much water?
Plain tap is 6.6
2 litres should do it, just enough to get the soil nice and moist top to bottom
Awesome thanks, I'll do it now
