Good afternoon everyone,
Your advice and assistance please.
My OH found two of these plants in their pots dumped at the recycling yard about a week ago and bought them home for me.
They aren't dead (yet) but they don't look fully alive either.
I pinched out and cut off anything dead or dying straight off and they looked much better just for that. I've positioned the pots in full sun, as the tag says and as it says they like dry soil haven't watered them so far (although its rained on them a bit!).
I've noticed however that in the last week, both plants have just as many dead or dying leaves as they had when I first saw them. What am I doing wrong? I'm sure they must need some moisture from time to time as I don't see how they can grow without it, but how much?
Both plants have lots and lots of flower buds in spite of all the dead looking leaves. Pics below. Apologies if they are rubbish pics, its blowing up a gale outside and the flippin things refused to hold still!
