My Gollum aka Little Finger is not doing well either😔 many leaves have shriveled and fallen off and some even have this white/gray frost thing on them! #help #gollum #plantdoctor 27 July 2016 photo taken

How often do you water?

@alovealoe About once every couple weeks. I'm really bad at determining if it needs water or not//bad at deciding if the soil is moist or not. I bought some plant books the other week because I don't know what "well draining soil" means. Or anything else plant care related. 😳😱

Read up. We'll draining soil is going to be a soil mix that you create, not one sold in stores. It should dry out fairly quickly.

Google cactus soil recipes. You can find one that has amendments available in your area

@alovealoe okay I will! Why can't they just sell a soil that is well draining?

I think because they want our plants to die so we buy more plants and soil.

Try propagating a leaf, if it grows then you have a back up plant 😄👍

@hazec Good idea and I will try. I've never done that so I'll have to google how it's done. Thank you. 🙂
