1/24/22: Watered after 10 days. It seems really unhappy, yellowing. The stalks on it are wrinkly like it is so dehydrated! Super weird

1/14/22: Fertilized! It’s still just so sad, and the leaves are yellow-green, not that gorgeous dark green

9/3/21: Watered a little after 15 days

8/19/21: Watered after 14 days

7/29/21: UPDATE! After two months, I put both plants back together. They had already grown a ton of roots! I think I will only water now when the leaves are droopy, maybe I was overwatering. Also kinda damaged new leaf in the repot process…

7/25/21: New leaf poking out! Have barely watered it since being cut, maybe once or twice? Why is it so happy??

5/30/21: CUT UP! Put main yellowing one back in pot and split the other six plants off. Need to buy them soil and pot

5/12/21: Bottom-watered after 23 days. Smallest plant started to wilt and leaf is slowly turning yellow, starting at the vein

4/26/21: New soil molded on top, so sprinkled cinnamon. Should only bottom water. Cut off old yellow leaf. Leaves are still yellowing but only on that one plant (out of 5)

4/17/21: Repotted into a mix of orchid bark and potting soil and perlite! Was TOTALLY root bound (maybe had for 1 year?) but need to repot again in a few months because new pot wasn’t big enough! Maybe this will stop leaf yellowing? If not, break apart roots even more

4/6/21: Cut off the yellowing parts of those two larger leaves

3/31/21: Two big leaves are getting yellow on a single frond :( so I fertilized it!

3/21/21: Watered with 2 cups after 10 days

3/15/21: Oh my god ANOTHER new leaf! But it’s really tiny. Also used scissors to cut off yellow part on huge leaf

3/11/21: Another new leaf! But it’s a small one. Watered after 13 days with 2 tall cups

2/27/21: NEW LEAF FINALLY!!! Watered with two cups after 13 days

2/14/21: Maria watered

2/7/21: Moved into direct sunlight

1/15/21: Watered with two red cups after 10 days

1/13/21: Pulled off 4 yellow leaves :(

1/5/21: Watered after 9 days, showered and rinsed off leaves! It had roots coming out the bottom, maybe that’s why it doesn’t have new leaves (energy dispersion?) Maybe water less, more frequently! To stop leaf yellowing

12/27/20: Maria watered!

12/18/20: Watered after 8 days

12/12/20: Cut off 2 large yellowed leaves and 1 small one. Looks like 4 more old ones are also slowly yellowing

11/30/20: Plucked off an old yellow leaf that had totally crisped up

11/23/20: Fertilized!

11/20/20: Dang another leaf is slowly yellowing! Am I going too long between waterings? Things get pretty droopy... will do research

11/3/20: Watered after 8 days, moved from 10 to 8 now that it’s next to a S window

10/26/20: Watered after 7 days, plucked a small crispy yellow leaf off

10/20/20: Noticed a new leaf starting to poke out!

10/19/20: Watered after 8 days instead of 10, now that it’s moved to a very sunny spot in my new apartment! Also dusted leaves

10/7/20: Plucked off big totally yellow dead leaf

10/1/20: Fertilized!

9/27/20: Rotated! It’s newest leaves are smallish, I think it would be much happier if it got way brighter sun (it’s a bit dim in the bathroom)

12/28/20: Fertilized because more leaves are yellowing!

9/12/20: Watered after 9 days
