    Keep watering, that’s all you can do. Try to keep the base area clear of other plants to allow its roots to settle and grow. Make sure it is planted at the same level as it had been growing originally. Planting deeper can rot the stem.

    Plants are unpredictable. The more you care for them, they fail. The neglected ones just thrive on their own.
