Please ignore the cats this was taken a few weeks ago all was well then but now very brown leaves


  • Is it the container causing the problem or have I crammed three large plants into a small area???

    Most likely - it's as you surmise. Too small a space for three plants.  :)

    Plenty of water I presume?

    I think that's likely to be the other problem @fidgetbones. Possibly combined with poor or incorrect growing medium as well.
    What are they growing in @trisha.nicholsS9WTPNJu?

    I'm not at all into cats, but they are fine specimens. The kind that would make a mere human feel inferior.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Nice plant. I expect it needs very sandy soil.  Could you possibly make the container bottomless and have the roots find their way into the ground underneath?

    People here will advise the right soil to plant it in and try to revive it.

    I think the containers aren't wide enough from front to back. I don't grow bamboo but most plants want to hmake rootballs that are wider than they are deep. So cramped roots, not enough moisture and possibly not enough goodness in the compost if they've been in there a while.
    PS the cats are beautiful :)
