Hello all! I need your help please! I work for a group home, and while the house and the people in it get good attention, these poor houseplants do not. With the exception of an aloe plant, I have no idea what these are -- I'm a bit new to this whole plants thing, but I love them!! I repotted a few of them yesterday because, had their pots had drainage holes, the roots would have been poking out. I know that aloe plants are pretty hardy so I'm not too worried about him, but the other ones are looking a little worse for wear. The ones I didn't touch are also not looking so good. I know when I'm not here they water the plants every day. My question is this -- what can I do to help them perk up a bit? I don't think they're ever in direct sunlight, but they are by windows that get light most of the day. Like I mentioned before I also think they get watered on a daily basis.
This one was in a TINY pot. Its' roots were curled and snarled all together, I tried to keep as much of it together as I could, but the dirt was absolute MUD. I'm not sure if this one is going to make it -- any ideas?
This one wasn't repotted, but just seems yellow around the leaves and dead-ish overall. There is a vine type plant in the same pot.
This one is actually the healthiest looking out of the bunch, not too much wrong with him, maybe just some care tips though?
These weren't repotted either. They are pathetic... the ones on the left are different, they're slowly deteriorating, and the one on the right WAS ok, but now it is just getting yellowy. The leaves still feel healthy, but they just look yellow.
I don't have much to work with here. The only thing I have is miracle-gro. If you could give me ideas that I could do at home without spending money, I don't have money to spend and I don't think the company does either. I'm aware these aren't ideal conditions, but I'm doing the best I can with what we've got!! It's better than leaving them to coil their poor little roots in the bottom of a muddy little pit right...
Thank you so much for your help! I appreciate it!!
