My sister gave me a "Swedish Ivy" and it was extremely overwatered. All the leaves fell off, and i let it dry out and watered it again, but it looks like a twig sticking out of the dirt. What should I do? Can I revive it? and how??? [Confused]

They like to be on the dry side& they like organic can pinch a cuting off and root in water.maybe check the soil if is hard it may not be getting air to the roots may this help you out.

Alaska Girl,
Hello! I don't know too much about your plant, but I wanted to stop through and Welcome you!!!
Glad you found us!!! Hope you'll enjoy your visit here with us at The Garden Helper's Forum......
Don't forget we have some new sections here, like recipes, crafts and hobbies. And we have Banter Hall just for chatting, to get to know the gardeners a little better. Also a Game Room to keep us busy while we're waiting to get into gardening outdoors..*some of us are still waiting to dig in the dirt*
Are you thawed out up there?
My husbands family has friends that live up there.
*I can't remember where for the life of me*
Also, we've had several members that have lived there or at least visited, hope you'll stick around and get to chatting with them and all the gardeners!!

Welcome aboard!

Don't forget to be kind to strangers. For some who have
done this have entertained angels without realizing it.

If your plant lost all of its leaves because of overwatering, then that means the roots have completely rotted and the plant cannot be revived. Sorry about that.

Hi Alaska Girl! [wayey]

I don't have the answer to your question, but wanted to say hi from one who lived in Alaska for a short while. I lived in Anchorage back in 1977-8. My husband, then boyfriend, lived in Girdwood for 3 years - he couldn't get enough skiing while there - both downhill and crosscountry.

I took quite a few trips down to Seward and Homer with my roommate and loved the areas. What peaceful beautiful country you live in! Wish I could go back in time... [Cool]
ah, well... maybe a visit back should be in the works sometime in the not so distant future... [thumb]
