I have two new house plants, a money plant and a dracaena elegance cane. They are low light plants. I accidentally left them in the sun for a couple of days and most of their leaves are bleached brown.
Are they going to die, or will they recover? Other than bringing them inside, and watering them properly, is there anything I can do to help them?

Can you post a photo for us to have an better idea how much damage has been done. I know that Dracaena elegance is a very resilient plant, so I wouldn't worry about that one.

|Oh what I would give for "sunlight over-exposure"... I suffer shade from neighbors' trees along the property lines... And it HAS to be south/west, not east/north. It is driving me me nuts.|
I am considering trying to buy the adjoining properties just so I can cut down the darn trees! Well some rental properties might be good... And deciding who your neighbors are might be good too.

|When you bring them inside or put them in the shade, be sure to cut back the dead/dying leaves. They offer add nothing at this point to your plants. Other than that, I think you are on the right track.|

|ok thanks, it sounds like it will be okay. I can't send a photo as I am out of the country right now. But good to know thanks!|
