Hello! My name is RJ and I've noticed this site can come in handy for many people. I'm having a slight problem with three of my plants and possibly one other. I'm syill learning a lot about these plants and I believe for the lavender I just over watered it and it seems to be doing fine now that I'm not watering it every other day (Just found out that was a no no!)
My spearment has random white spots and slight discoloring (A little yellow and a patch of dark brown) to the leaves. I've only had this plant for about a week and a few days ago it was just fine!
My basil plant looked as if it was dying when I first got it. It shrivled up and nearly died until I put some coffee grounds around it shot up within a few days. How much am I suppose to water the basil? I still don't get it. The leaves are small and keep curling in. One of the leaves even has a brown spot on it. Help!
I have chives and those are doing o.k, but I am noticing some strands are limping and withering away.
Suggestions? I would love to know what I'm doing wrong. I've read a bit about spidermits and mint rust. I live in a rather sunny area right now but every other day it's slightly cloudy. They get a good amount of sun and all of these plants live in pots until I can have a big garden of my own. I wonder if the spearmint needs a bigger pot? I've been considering bringing the pots closer to the house they live by. Seems as if they attract daddy long legs and I hear the spiders eat harmful bugs.
I don't see any webs on my plants and I've checked the underside of the plants as well. There is nothing?! Help!!
