@cyndi I'll see if I can find out my soil composition, I can tell you it's the same as it was last year when it was doing so good, I put in new soil but it's the same kind I always use 💘😍

@cyndi honestly, I have checked everything! I'm completely stumped! I've had Plants do this before and they usually end up dead and buried! This is hanging on for dear life cuz it actually has a couple of very very very small buds on it!😲😂 So it's wait and see! Thanks for your input tho!💘😍
