    Up until a few weeks ago, my baby was green and very healthy looking, but now it looks like its dying :( I tried adding some Miracle-gro Acid plant food to the water when I watered it, but it doesnt sseem to be working... :'(

    It's only a stab in the dark Bip,
    but if I saw foliage like that in my garden, the first thing I'd check for would be spider mite. :scheming:
    Someone else may have a different answer for you.

    You know, I think we do have those, especially on my roses o_O I was wondering what the web looking things were o_O (dunno why I never asked) Any idea on how I can get rid of em if thats what it is?

    Any other ideas on what it might be?

    I looks a little like it's scorched. Maybe it's getting too much sun.

    I have it in a shadier area (any more shade and itd be inside the house lol), but its still not doing well :( Id hate to lose it >_< Im gonna try giving it some different fertilizer I bought at Menards, see if that helps any.
    Too bad it had to do this now, Im going to Chincoteague Island next week! Hmm, maybe I could take it with me? :D
