Did you lose any plants this year?
I lost two. The maranta I bought early in the year could not recover after I let it dry out just a little too much.
I also bought three sinningas from the Violet Barn about 6 mos ago - one started going down hill from the moment I got it and bit the dust. One is thriving and the other seems to be in suspended animation...doesn't grow, doesn't decline. Weird.
Also, tried to propagate an african violet by a leaf cutting and while the leaf is still alive, there's no baby in 5 months. I thought they usually would show a new plant in 6 weeks or so. (?)
