Dying by Inches


I've tried the office and the home. I've tried full sunlight, indirect sunlight and no sunlight. I've tried watering and not watering. I'm about ready to pitch this and buy her a spider plant because the petunia is not working.

Could it be the pot is putting off a chemical? I had a pot kill a Philly plant and their hard to kill.

I get it: Petunia Pig. Brilliant!

Petunia Pig - LOL - I would have never gotten it!

You might try potting the petunia in another pot that has good drainage holes and then set it in the pig. There is also a chance that the plant is diseased, so no matter what you do isn't going to make a difference. Bummer

She's got lovely drainage holes. She widdled all over the top of my file cabinet!

I'm going to try something cheap from the supermarket and if it dies, I'll try Packrat's suggestion of a pot within a pig.

Then you'd have a pot-bellied pig :-)

I've never been able to grown anything that's normally planted outside inside in a container, no matter how hard I tried or how carefully I tried to match light/water with outside. Gee, petunias outside just grow like weeds. A scented geranium is always nice if you don't mind not having flowers, or an ivy or fern.

As it turned out, the spider plant was hardier.

If it's any comfort, I've managed to kill a snake plant.
