Without knowing too many particulars (like how often you water) I'd say the main culprit here looks to be overwatering, although sunlight definitely sounds like a factor as well. Almost all of these are desert plants, and should be allowed to dry out between watering.

For cactus #11, was it steadily growing sideways towards a light source, or did it just seem to suddenly collapse? It doesn't look to have typical yellowing that you see on rotting cactus, but if it collapsed rather suddenly it's most likely due to overwatering. Not sure if it's salvageable, perhaps someone else has advice.

The hawthornia (zebra plant) and jade also look to be overwatered. Are the yellow leaves on the jade mushy feeling? I would repot them both, checking for mushy roots. If the jade has root rot, you may be best off propagating a few new ones from healthy leaves (it's super easy and rewarding :) ). I'd suggest repotting in terracotta pots. They might not be as visually appealing as some decorative pots, but the clay will help to pull out extra moisture from the soil.

I think you're correct about the overwatering of the fiddle leaf fig as well, but as long as the woody stalks aren't withered it should recover. I don't have much experience with them, but I know it can be a long process (1 yr+) to see healthy new growth.

If you're concerned about a lack of light, I would also suggest picking up a full spectrum light bulb and a cheap pendant lamp, and putting your plants under it. While it's not a perfect replacement for natural sunlight, I got one for my jade tree a while back and it seems to help.

It's hard to see, but it looks like your small air plant may have bloomed, is that right? I believe most air plants only bloom once in their life, and you'll want to cut the dead bloom off at its base to promote potential pups sprouting. Your large air plant is lovely by the way, I'm a bit envious. :)

I'm a pretty casual/novice plant lover, but I figured I'd try to steer you in (hopefully) the right direction, since there hasn't been any other advice given. Best of luck to you!

From my girlfriend not me lol

"The corner shelf was originally a steel/aluminum bathroom shelf that I painted white. I actually prefer it because it doesn’t soak up any lingering water or cause mold. I can’t find the exact one I have, but here are amazon links to similar ones.

As for the peperomia hope, I’m not 100% sure if this will help with the curling, but I make sure to give mine a thorough watering when the older leaves closest to the roots are soft and the soil is completely dry. Mine is quite small, it’s in a 3” terra-cotta with really airy soil and gets bright light (currently from a grow light) so I do tend to water more frequently.

I hope this helps!!"

That guy is pretty etiolated. Just because they are near a window doesn't mean they are getting adequate light. I have my succulents on a west-facing windowsill that gets blasted with super bright sunset light and yet they are STILL etiolating. You might want to either invest in a grow light or put in on a south-facing window. If you want to do a grow light (which I realize you are in an office and space is valuable), this clip lamp and this bulb.

I always recommend that houseplant and cannabis gardeners keep spinosad (Saccharopolyspora spinosa) on hand as it is non-toxic, safe for consumable plants, and effective against aphids, caterpillars, leaf hoppers, leaf miners, mites, soft-bodied scale, thrips, etc. I also recommend an 8 week systemic to prevent most of the pests listed from coming back (spider mites excluded.) The systemic is only rated for non-consumable plants and will need to be reapplied every eight weeks.

I've had some concerned questions about the systemic's active ingredient and its toxicity. Imidacloprid is an
odorless analog of nicotine, a chemical used in the past for controlling aphids. Imidacloprid is of low
toxicity (used in flea collars) and is classified as a "reduced risk alternative

Some plants, such as sensitive orchids, can react very negatively to any systemic.

Best I could find find size wise was this LED Light Cap

My engineering buddy made a breathable lip to fit the lid and glass jar. He used a 3-D printer and rendering software.

If anyone has light blue suggestions / grow tips or anything - please tell me everything

A bunch of these in these are the cheapest, easiest, and will probably be one of the most effective things. They will help block out some of the sun through the windows and give you more of a dappled light effect which should also help. Pothos come in all sorts of patterns so find one you like.

What kind of ceiling? If it has that popcorn stuff, a command hook could just tear some of the plaster off when you try to hang something on it.

I used to have a hanging pot rack in my old place that I hung up with some ceiling anchors.
The designs vary, but mostly look like this:

When you screw it in, it has two prongs that come out to distribute the weight better.

I set my water out to dechlorinate at least a day if I can't get rain water or air-conditioning condensate and use Garden Safe brand Take Root rooting hormone. I put about what fits on the end of a key in enough water to cover the bottom 1-3 inches of the stems.
Here is the Amazon link.. .

I follow several accounts on Instagram that focus on what I think you’re looking for.

One is @houseplantjournal He has a book, which when searched on amazon gave plenty of recommendations on other books.

Also, the Instagram accounts @thejungalow is great and I believe they also have a book, and @thesill if you’re in nyc or LA offer courses.

Thoughts on this? Also, what do you recommend for ratio. 100% of the stuff, or mixed in with garden soil?

I bought this herb book book years ago. There's lots of good pictures of the plants and their parts and included medical uses.

To piggy back a little; the chemical components of which you speak are collectively refereed to as secondary metabolites. These are also where humans get many other intoxicants, from opium to marijuana; cocaine to kat.

Then some plants, notably grasses, have a mutualism with endopytic fungi that also produce secondary metabolites for the plant in exchange for sugars.

Another plant, notably the sensitive plant literally closes it's leaves.

For more very cool stuff, check out David Attenborough's the Private Life of Plants episode 5.

Also, try Plant Survival by Brian Capon (author of Botany for Gardeners).

Most carn. plants need a lot of water (tray method) and lots of light. Depending on your USDA zone you can keep them outside. I have flytraps, sarracenias and some sundews in my garden all year round. In winter they are not pretty but in summer they thrive.
Try to get a copy of this book the Savage Garden.
It has a much info. Lots of love for the plants and 'learn as you go' worked for me.

The best solution is imidacloprid, if you live in a place where its legal. Make sure to use it only when your plant is not in bloom to avoid killing bees.
I use this one. Best solution for almost everything except spider mites. I actually started using it because of whiteflies attacking my euphorbia milii.

u/greenebean18 · 2 pointsr/plants

Spray insecticidal soap (look for one that specifically treats for spider mites) and a pesticide powder or liquid in the soil should do the trick. I really like Bonide’s House Plant Insect Control

If you caught it soon enough, even the palm should be ok, but maybe keep it isolated for a few more days if the conditions outside won’t harm it, just to be safe.
