Help me save my plant!
I do not really have plants, I just have one little vine plant. (My fiance said he believed it was philodendron or similar vine plant) I have had it since winter of 2008 and it did really well until about half a year ago during a move in which it got mostly eaten by cats and placed in a spot without much sun or water for a very long time.
I started regularly watering it and giving it plenty of sun maybe three weeks ago; now there is nothing left but one little leaf-less green vine only about 6 or 7 inches in length, and that is rather dry looking. I asked my mom for advice and she helped my take it up from its pot and put the remaining roots and vine into a glass of water with some plant food. Its been hanging out on the south side of my house in a window with sun all day for the last three days or so but there's not much change in its appearance from what I can tell. The only thing I have noticed is that now there is some fuzzy white stuff on the roots, like mold, but it appears to be coming from the dirt.
So here are some questions I have:
- Is the white stuff bad?
- Will keeping it in a glass help?
- Should I modify the temperature that I keep in the house or its exposure to sunlight because it is in a glass/dying?
- How often should I change the water?
- What can I do????
Please help me, this plant is very dear to me as it was a gift that my fiance and I bought for eachother during our first christmas together. I really want to save it.
