Hi there
Novice green thumb and I went to get a bunch of recommended plants.

I fear one is maybe root bound and past the point of bringing back...problem is I don't want to uproot if all I need to do is water less/more.

I'm actually not too sure what the plant is but I do have a picture from the day of purchase as well as a current picture of the not so happy plant.

Any advice welcome!

Do post the plant photo so we can all see what plant you have there and indicate your location too on your profile. That will help us understand some more about your growing conditions.

Welcome to Garden.org, @plantyvr !

Assuming your plant is still in a pot, you should be able to pop it out, root ball and all, to check the condition of the roots.

But, as Tarev said, please post the photos and let us know where you are located ... Smiling
