Please id there Plants and advise on care

rohit_potsJuly 31, 2010

I have purchased these plants from HomeDepot. I keep them in my balcony where there is plenty of sun in the afternoon. Used to water them everyday, but the buds are always turning brown. Not sure if I am overwatering them, and over exposing them to sun. So started watering them every other day and brought them indoors. Still no luck. Was not sure about the right care for these.

Also need help identifying another indoor plant I recently purchased. IT is doing fine, but just want the optimal care for it.

Will appreciate any advice to help my plants recover.

Not sure what they are, but surely shouldn't need water everyday. The soil looks heavy and not much drainage.
They are probably rotting away. Check the roots, if brown and mushy. Roots should be firm and almost white.
Whatever changes you make do one thing at a time and give them time to respond. Thats the only way you know what works.
You simply can't expect them to rebound daily after abuse or lack of care. HD is known for drowning or drought. Probably already rotting when you brought them home.

I thought I'd tried to post an answer to this, that I'd tried to look but the pix were too small & distant for me to tell.

I do agree the last pix seems to be a Ming Aralia, aka Polyscias, which I don't believe wants direct light. Prefers bright indirect light, will benefit from a pebble tray.
