I grew this from seed last summer. It only had 2 leaves and one fell off 6 months ago. It just stop growing. I've fertilized it and it's still the same. It has been like this for over 6 months. Any ideas?
Thank you,
Tin

I would put it in the fanciest outer pot I could afford, put it on public display with a sign -
Extremely Rare, Extremely Difficult to Grow Zydvonia.

Its a MIRACLE!!!

Can't complain too loud about how the ball bounces when I'm the one who dropped it.

I'm sorry, Tin. I was sure everyone would recognise that "zydvonia" is a non-existent, magical plant. They used to live wherever my grandfather went because the mysterious, elusiva zydvonia was the only plant he recognised. This invisible plant has been accepted into my family for so long that I do forget that not everyone shares our knowledge or realizes its a joke. I apologise, sincerely. Hope you didn't do any researching of this thing. OTOH, if you do find some reference to this fantasy PLEASE let me know.

Try a repot. I've seedlings stall out like this (even when not even close to outgrowing their pot), and then after repotting in fresh soil they took off.

Thank you.
