Velvet calathea or Furry feather calathea - leaves curling....

just noticed the leaves on our lovely Calathea are curling in from the sides - not from the top. Any ideas? Still in same place its always been, but was repotted two weeks ago. Under watered? Over watered?.....

Re: Assistance identifying some plants

from neil

Hi Dave, just taking a stab at these:
1. Ruffled or Miraguama or Windmill
2. Carpentaria Acuminata
3. Cabada?
4. Cordyline
5. Australian Cabbage Palm
6. Pony Tail Palm
7. Dypsis of some description
8. Fan Palm
9 & 10 = Possibly Acers?

Interested to know if I'm right on any!

Friend wants me to put wood chip in between young trees growing out of border. Will the trees suffer if I layer the beds with sheeting first to prevent weeds growing thru? Thanks ....

Thanks for the reply. Not thinking its the Rhoeo, although they look interesting enough to look at again. Could be a Aspidistra, I'll go with that unless told otherwise. Thanks again.

Just looks ill...

from neil

Anyone have any magic remedies for perking this lovely Phoenix Roebelenii up a tad please?Its not got worse since I picked it up from the 'soon to be compost' area of the garden centre & repotted her, but neither has she recovered much in 8 months. Even the kids feel sorry for Droopy Dora (I know, really) and I am aware once brown, the fronds rarely recover, but what concerns me are the brown fronds at the middle of the plant. These should be green. Help?

What would this house plant be then?

from neil

checked books, internet , but can't find a definitive answer as to what this 2.5 ft house plant is. Any solution would signal the return of serenity . This is why I stick to ferns & palms, you know where you are with ferns and palms.

Black frond on 'baby' Cyathea cooperi

from neil

any ideas why this lovely little fern is showing black fronds. Its in the shed and may be indirectly wet when I'm spraying the other ferns occasionally.....Thanks...
