|When I first bought the plant it had flowers. Now all had fallen off. And as you can see from the photo the leafs started to darken and shriveled. I follow the advise of the lady where I bought the plant and only water it twice a week. I keep it indoors.
For this one I bought it about a year ago. It used to have a lot more leaves.The remaining leaves are turning a bit yellowish. May I know how to get it to sprout more leaves?

| Depending on how much water you give your flowering African Violet each time, you are probably overwatering it. A thorough weekly watering should be adequate.
It looks like your Philodendron is growing in water and has been for a long time. The plant's water does not provide enough nutrients so after a while the leaves do what yours are doing. You might consider moving it into a small pot with soil or adding some hydroponic nutrients to the water.

|Thanks so much for the advise Will! I will try watering it once a week and see how it goes. For my Philodendron I will search online for some hydroponic nutrients to add to the water first|
