Need Help! My Corn Plant is in TROUBLE!
My beautiful corn plant is 4 years old. I brought it outside 2 days ago, to gently wash the leaves with the water hose because the leave were a little dusty. Well, I had to run an errand, and when I returned, my husband was DROWNING my poor plant. I mean, he put so much water in the pot, that it was slushy!!! I said "What are you doing?!?" and he said he didn't realize my pot didn't have holes in the bottom and told me that he thought the plant seemed very dry. He didn't know that this plant doesn't require alot of water. I mean, I was really mad, because he hasn't watered that plant in 4 years, so I don't know what made him an authority in the plant's care. Anyways, I knew I had to get the plant out of that swamp he had created so I transplanted it to a different pot and transfered lots of dry planting soil to try to soak up some of the excess water. I left it outside out of the sun for the past 2 days hoping it would dry out. The soil is semi-moist, and the leaves are still green, BUT I now notice they seem to be wilting and some of the leaves are showing bruises. I brought it back inside because I am afraid the heat may be bad for it. I am afraid it will die. This was my mother's plant, I got it for her for Mother's day and she died of cancer later that same year. It is very sentimental to me. I have nurtured this plant and it was beautiful - now it's a mess. In short, is there anything I can be doing to help save my plant? Someone please help me!
