You were sold a tree that should never have been on the market. I'm guessing that the lower three feet were covered by a flexible white plastic tube, right? The purpose of this tube in a nursery is supposedly to equip the tree with protection from critters, but in reality it usually serves as a home for insects and a disguise for problems such as canker and ...

Yucca is easily propagated by cuttings, but there is a limit of how big the cutting can be. As I understand you correctly, you cut off the whole plant (with a lot of foliage) from its roots. The cutting (the whole plant) is too large. It takes time before new roots will appear, and in the meantime the foliage will die because of lack of water. You can try ...

That is a dracaena , a very hardy tolerant plant. Possibly dry to cause the leaf curl. Have you changed something ?

It might live but is has been severely weakened by decay of the heart wood . The bark layers can keep it alive as water and nutrients flow through the various bark layers but it needs the center wood for strength. The decay will continue to develop.

This is probably an attack by the potato flea beetle. Deficiency or simple necrosis (leaf tissue death by mechanical means) would be more yellow, brown or black; the white is distinctive. The beetles chew out the green layer inside the leaf and do so in a spotty fashion leaving circular patches, so the leaf surfaces remain but the green is gone, leaving a ...

Persian Lime cannot stand more than a few degrees below freezing before it is damaged. Snow on the ground indicates that the temperature went at least to freezing and maybe below, at which point the trunk will suffer damage. Leaf fall may have been first due to low temperatures but will have been reinforced by trunk freezing and possibly root damage as well. ...

I imagine it was not originally this color and was much closer to the one remaining part that looks like a tan/yellowy green ball? I do not know much about cacti specifically, but the dramatic color change is very disturbing. This article gives a few different causes and a few possible remedies. It is looking rather bleak for your cacti, especially since I'm ...

Dig them up completely and separate the dead from the living. Divide the living plants and replant them. Lavender is very forgiving. Pruning the dead stuff is really the way to go in the future. Once in the fall after they are done blooming, cut them back on top about 1/3 down in a half globe shape. If you have them planted under the eave in the back of a ...

I bought this plant for my house a few months ago. Over the winter it dropped 80% of its leaves and I was going to throw it out. Instead I cut back all the old branches that didn’t have any leaves on them and aerated the soil using chopsticks or a pencil. The next week I had loads of new leaves growing at the top of the plant and a month later the bottom as ...
