Drooping Chocolate Soldier
Ask the Expert:Drooping Chocolate Soldier
I have a chocolate soldier that about a month ago got way too much water.Â Since then I have transplanted the plant into a pot that drains well.Â However, my plant is still really really droopy and I am worried that it may not make it.Â The blooms on it are still coming but they do not open.Â Any help would be appreciated but please hurry.Â Norma
Plant Expert Reply:
Give the plant time to recover.Â Try to keep the conditions consistent. Chocolate solider needs to have a visual dryness between watering. Use tepid water when you do water them and try not to get the leaves wet.Â Keep them in partial sun or shade (an east, west, or northern exposure). A little direct sunlight is beneficial; try to avoid hot noonday sun. They need warm temperatures above 65 degrees. Follow these care instructions and the plant should make a full recovery. Good Luck and keep me posted.
