I no good with looking after plants so i brought a Zanzibar gem because they “thrive on neglect”.
I have managed to keep this plant alive for some years until it started getting too big for its pot. Its since re potting it that its not growing as nice as before. It just looks sad and only has two or three shoots growing :( HELP

Ask your question
  • Possibly repot and possibly get some advice from a nursery too.


  • Maybe apply a balanced liquid houseplant fertiliser once a month when watering. Also, only water when fully dry.


  • Repot into larger planter and bury in the potting mix your hair from your brush provides nitrogen to the soil and boil egg shells in water and cool and put this on your plant provides calcium. This will help your plant grow healthier.
