I know I can get a new one, but this one has helped me over the years when I burnt myself, and I would like to save it.
Here’s the history of it:
1- 3 main ‘stalks’ in a small pot, plant does not get any larger, but when I cut it back (for using it for minor burns) it grows back fine.
2 - (2 yrs ago) Transplant it into a much larger pot. The dirt level was not as high as it was in the old pot. New growth started.
3 - (1.8 years ago) Someone tried to help it by splitting the 3 stalks into 3 separate plants so these were ‘ripped’ apart and put back in 3 separate sections in the larger pot. That person refused to admit it.
4 - (1.5yrs ago) Leaves (mainly the old large leaves) started to die off on some stalks. It seems like the roots ‘detached’ from the leave.
5 - (1.2 yrs ago) Stalk 1 of 3 died, new growth on stalks 2 and 3.
6 - (0.8 years ago) Repeat of #4 on stalk # 2
7 - (0.4 years ago) Stalk 2 of 3 died, new growth on stalk 3
8 - (0.2 years ago) filled soil to the top of the pot, hopefully to the level it was in the original pot, but it was so long ago.
9 - (present) Plant has 3 leaves, 2 old one new. There is some growth on the new leave, the old ones seem pretty static.
I usually water it lightly, maybe a 1/2 a shot glass every other day if the soil feels dry. Occasionally let the soil go totally dry (1/month) and sometimes let the soil get totally soaked (1/every other month).
Can this be saved?
