Hi ShadyGreenThumb!

I know how you feel. I would feel really bad if something happened to my plants but if others have had success I think it should work. We'll find out in a few months whether it was a mistake or not. Wish me luck! Thumbs up

Hi Jericsson,

I'm at a point of no return. I cut my plant hung it up soaked in root hormone and placed a Styrofoam in the pot and put my plant on it. I read somewhere that you need to tie down your plant so it doesn't move so I did that. Now what do I do with the plant? Do I leave in partial shade? Do I water or maybe mist? As for my other plant I cut the root off and is now hanging. I think it's drying very fast so I may pot it tomorrow. I appreciate your advice.

Welcome! Twinks. It would help if we knew what climate zone you are in. The rule is to underwater rather than overwater these plants, by the way!

I NEED HELP I was just checking my plants and all the leaves are sticky, also on two that have lots of buds, the buds are falling off, they were fine a few days ago now I am really concerned, I sure do not want to lose them. Any ideas.

Doris, I would check for Aphids on the plants. They excuse a honey-dew substance that is clear and sticky. If this is the culprit, just spray with water every few days to keep them at bay until blooms are finished. I have sprayed with a Safer's soap product, but you need to do in morning with no sun light on them, leave for a couple hours and rinse it off with water afterwards. If not rinsed off the leaves will burn with sunlight on them.
If buds are at an early stage, it should not hurt the blooms. Can distort if buds have swollen to te point of opening.

These have never been outside yet this year but I may have to take them out and spray them.

Hi Doris, mine are out now, but when I have them inside is when I have more issues with pests than I have outside. With the dry conditions inside. I find they get those pesky Mites.
I have not seen anything sticky from mites, but definitely from aphids.
The mites usually make the leaves somewhat speckled looking, although you are probably aware already of this.
I hope you can find out what is causing this.

Well I could not see anything even with my magnifier so I took them in the kitchen sink and sprayed them all over, now I have taken them outside.
As you see by this picture I still use the old fashioned flypaper when I can find it, it does wonders with those gnates and aphids.
