I already posted somewhere else on this forum, but it's an emergency with my philidondron.
I am a young teen with a dying philodendron, I had to ask about it first. I also have killed off 2 air plants and 4 holiday cacti, yet I can keep my outdoor garden alive and have most of my impatients survive a harsh snowy winter.
This philidondron is 40 years old, and has been the family for its entire life, I can't let this clipping die. I started with 5 clippings, now this one has a brown root, and 2 small leaves. I already posted asking if there was hope for this plant. I only joined to try to save this plant, I'm already crying over it. My mother will be upset to hear bad news about this plant, it came from her side of the family, and I said I would care for it, and save it, but it's noit working.

I'm afraid I have the same shortcomings with houseplants.

I'd suggest you post your question in the houseplant forum for the best suggestions.

I suggest you complete your profile page to show some approximate idea of where you live. Even growing plants indoors is based on climate...i.e. putting a plant close to a window in an extremely cold climate is ill advised. Bright window light in Arizona is much different than light coming through a window in upper Canada.
