Help this baby Norfolk Pine!!!!!

eayeary(5)March 26, 2012

I bought a beautiful Norfolk Pine before Chstimas that was about a foot tall. Since then it has grown so much I repotted it into 3 different pots. I had 7 plants in one pot. There happened to be a very tiny little sprouter so I took it out, put it in a small pot for a friend at work. I have mine at home in a window that only gets reflective sun and they are doing very well. The coworker put this little guy directly in the bright south-facing window. We're in Ohio so the weather was terribly warm for March and now it snowed this morning. What is going on with this guy and how can she fix him before he's a loss? It breaks my heart to see him suffering when all the other ones at home are doing so well.

This is the only way I can post this while at work. It wouldn't allow me to upload a picture on here at all? No idea why. I'm fairly new to using this site but have been reading the forums for a long time. :)

Get it out of the hot sunny window, keep it cool, keep it very humid (the air not the soil) and cross your fingers. Oh, and the soil looks sopping wet too.

Is it sitting in water?

I thought the responses would post to my email. I'm terribly sorry I haven't gotten back to you! I've been waiting for an email notice but nothing came along. I took it out of that situation and planted it in some African Violet soil because it was so wet and did remove it from the window but when I checked it this morning (it's a coworkers) she had doused it in water again. So I decided it is done for. :(
