Succulent Plant 1
My name is Reena, I live in Houston, TX. I fell in love with owning houseplants during my freshman year of undergrad and have kept mainly succulents and cacti.
After a string of difficult life events, I moved from my apartment into a house with windows that give very little light due to a sun screen obscuring any direct sunlight.
Due to this, I had no choice but to move my plants outside. I knew that this would be traumatic for my plants but I’ll admit I was distracted by everything going on and simply neglected to think about the well-being of the plants I’ve loved for so long.
After about a month of avoiding looking at my plants purely out of shame and embarrassment to what I’ve done to them, I confronted my mistakes.
To say they’re in bad shape is an understatement.
We’ve been having pretty heavy thunderstorms in Houston coupled with record temperatures. My plants have been in direct sunlight and rain and reside on the second floor balcony of my house.
Most of their pots have drainage holes. They're on the backside of the house which I believe is south facing. I know this is a long shot but I want to at least try to revive them if possible. I’m not sure where to start due to the fact I’m a pretty novice houseplant owner but I owe it to them to try. I would appreciate any help or advice if you have any. I will do anything to rebuild what I’ve destroyed.
