    Try a miracle grow treatment and then leave it be for a couple of weeks. Hopefully, it will improve 😊

    If you look closely at the plants you eoll see some tiny little bugs. Good to your local folks that sells sprays and talk to them

      Thank you i see something brown at the base of some stems. So something is definitely eating/infected them.

    No need to buy expensivebug spray. Mix up water and about a tablespoon of any WHITE diswashing liquid in a spray bottle. It must be white in color..like Ivory if theystill make it? Spray leaves thoroughly n let dry, uze every few days til bugs r gone. Ive been growing these plants for yrs..they LOVE THE SUN! Good luck!

      Thank you I was just thinking about using Dawn and water to spray it with. I put it outside so as not to infect my other plants. I will try the Ivory though.

      This helped alot. I took the plant from the pot,there so many dark long damp roots in the pot. I cut most off rinsed and put in water in vase. I'm going to buy new soil to repot though. Thanks for the link

  • Yay! So glad I could help! I used to have one years ago. I remember it being easy to grow. Wishing you the best with yours ♥

    Hi , I have an arrowhead plant that I brought with me when we moved from Arkansas to Arizona , it did great for several months ( even surviving over the winter here ), now that the weather has changed from hot to hottest , this is happening also to my plant . After suggestions from many neighbors , I narrowed the culprit down to my boyfriend , I would water , then he ( thinking he's doing me a favor), would water all my plants again . So , it's from over watering in this case . I'm going to remove the plant from the pot and dry out the roots and report in clean dry soil. This also happened with my variegated spider plant . 😣So, thanks for helping me !

    Not a great picture...but to me it looks like your butterfly plant and wandering Jew needed a bigger pot some time ago and more than likely some good soil. Also, from what I can see, you might need to cut it back some once you get it repotted, but I would give it about a week to adjust to the new pot before I cut it back. They’re beautiful plants and take low maintenance once you get them in the proper pot. If you planted this for better air quality in your home or office then you might also consider a Golden Pothos ...again low maintenance...however, if you own animals, make sure they dont try to eat them. Best of luck!
