Basically I got it a year and a half ago, lovingly named it Samwise, and it did fine until recently. Got some small red mite thing, couldn’t figure out what it was, but took care of it with neem oil. After that, it started to deteriorate really quickly. I did a little bit of research and it looks a lot like root rot, but I wonder about the neem oil effects. I’ve heard/read it can be bad but took the chance, it took care of bugs nicely. I keep it wet, bottom watering, and I think that might have caused root rot. It sent up a second flower stalk this month, which I let grow after the first one was eaten by the cat, so it’s weak and I’m afraid to repot because it’s so weak. I’ve attached a picture, it was fine until about a week and an half ago.
