I've left some plants in the care of my flatmate, however they are looking very sad!! I can't tell if they are over-watered or underwatered, can anyone tell from this picture?
I've asked her to do the finger soil test, but as she doesn't have any plants herself and doesn't normally look after them I don't think it's clear to her whether it's damp or not!
it's meant to be a rubber plant in the grey and white pot at the front, and a clarinervium anthurium in the one behind!
hoping they can be rescued!

|Plant leaves wilt when the soil is allowed to get too dry. However, if the soil stays wet for an extended period of time., the roots suffocate and die and the plant wilts because the roots are no longer able to supply the plant with water even when the soil is watered.
How often does she water? How recently? How much does she provide?
