Hi? I have had a Shadow plant for over a year, it began to wither and now only has two leaves left and they don't look too healthy either! What should I do? This plant was a gift and would hate to lose it.

Thanks :-)



What is a shadow plant? I've never heard of a plant with that common name, do you have the botanical name for it?, Derek.

Hi Derek,
The other name on its card is 'Rosea Picta'.
