Some of you might remember my pride at not being a plant killer. Well, I was feeling so good about my Dieffenbachia this past December that I wanted to do something nice for it. I added a small amount of liquid fertilizer and topped up the soil a bit. I spoke a few kind words to my plant. I thought, how nice to have an old friend right next to me these past years. In the course of a few weeks my plant started turning brown and losing leaves. I think it's dead now.
I'm going to do a complete soil transplant this weekend and see if my plant comes back. If not, I'm going to buy a new one and treat it like s**t. They don't call it dumbcane for nothing.
