The Q&A Archives: plant reviveing

Question: I have these beautiful plants, one is called an egyptian papayrus and the other is elephant ears. Last year they were growing beautiful, and all of a sudden they got fungis in the soil. What can I do to revive them?

Answer: If the soil has fungus growing, it doesn't sound as though it is draining well enough. The best way to try and save your plants is to dig them up, dig out the diseased soil, replace it with fresh soil and then replant your plants. Or, you can simply plant them in containers using potting soil, which drains well.

Best wishes with your plants!
