Use a better potting medium. It appears you are using soil from your garden. Which is fine for the ground, but not for a pot. A pot is an artificial environment. It has different requirements. It appears your plant is very dry. Start by giving it some water to drink. If you plant has any chance of survival it will start to perk up a little bit ...

Pineapples are dry land epiphytes. This means that they use roots for anchoring, but get much of their moisture and nutrients from the air and what falls into the leaf bases which are like little cups. Probably your plant went through a dry period or some stress which constricted the base and it was too mature to recover. Not to worry, it will be very ...

You soil is too wet. It is also too high up the plant. It should not be completely covering the pineapple top. It should look like it's a pineapple stuck in soil. You want to use well draining potting mix. Something like peat and perlite. Or any indoor potting mix will do. Those a made to be light and fluffy. Your mix appears to be muddy. It does ...

Its definitely got less of a chance of making it now then it did before it was damaged, but if I were a betting man, and I am, id say as long as that tap root isn't damaged, and conditions are ideal, its probably going to make it. Some advice though, dont baby it. If you do, and thats the only reason it survives, your going to have a weak tree. Avocado'...

Yes, it may well affect root development. Planting a seedling in such a large container on its own isn't a great idea, because it may put out long, meandering roots rather than forming a good rootball. That leaves a lot of unoccupied soil in the container which you then have to keep wet or damp in order to keep your little plant alive, and that can lead to '...

It would first depend on the type of seedling. If it's a plant that only grows small roots in a fairly confined area then it may not be affected at all or very little. If it's a tree or a large plant, going to develop roots in every available area in your small space. So, I think the answer you are looking for is, the plant will develop roots where there ...

These are 48" long, so may be too large: Lee Valley LED Tape kits. This company has a wide range of LED lighting, so you may want to poke about on their website if these don't work for you. I can recommend the company but I have no experience with their lighting

As you've used the tag 'indoor' I'm assuming you're growing this as a houseplant? First, is there a drainage hole in that pot? Or is the plant in a pot with a drainage hole inside the outer pot? If it's in a container with no drainage hole, that needs to be corrected, so transfer to a different pot that has drainage. Watering and light requirements are ...

It looks like a Corokia cotoneaster. I think yours is too gone to treat. I think it was overwatered. See if it is waterlogged. Does that pot have holes in the bottom. If not get it a new pot. But, I would start over with a new plant. Those small leaves can easily dry out, but they are known to be drought resistant. There is the possibility that the ...

It's a Dracena. Get it in some nice potting mix with lots of drainage. The roots will take off with time. For the time being, don't fertilise. Also when you water it remember the size of the roots. Little roots can't take up a huge pots worth of water. You want the soil to have plenty of air for the roots to breath. If you water log them with too ...

Take a look around at young palm trees the best ones with no sunburn get lots of bright light, but no direct light. Young palms naturally grow under the bright dappled light of older larger palms trees. Also, when a plant, whether it shade or sun loving, gets sun for the first time during an intense time, like late afternoon that sun tends to burn a plants ...
