I'm glad to hear that LilyP ... it must have been horrid and quite scary.   I think we sometimes dont realise how ill we've been until we recover and realise that all the effects of the illness have gone.

Size of pot?

Good indoor starter plants?

Spiderplants (Chlorophytum comosum) are pretty tolerant and easy going as is Mother in Law's Tongue (Sanseveria 

They both require quite different conditions and treatment, so look them up ... study the conditions you can provide for them (light/temperature etc) and make your choice.

The main culprits are plants in the euphorbia family.  It's the white latex-like sap.

My onion bulb sets are not growing

Posted: 09/11/2017 at 11:36

If you planted sets of a variety suitable for autumn planting  you should have nothing to worry about.  

The bulbs won't begin to swell until late spring ... then the leaves will begin to die down and your onions should be ready to harvest in the summer.

@Buttercupdays ... this is an old thread from 2011 which has been trawled up by one of those PITAs plugging their latest snake oil.  I'ts been reported to the Mods and doubtless it'll get removed when they get a moment.  

I imagine the poster has  another elder by now. 

Why some leaves seem burnt

Posted: 09/11/2017 at 10:51

I can't see any burnt leaves ... just some flowers dying off.

Plant pot looks a bit small ... I'd pot it on before long.
