Question: I have a Kalanchoe plant that has been traumatized. My girlfriend accidentally knocked it off the counter and now it's dying. What am I supposed to do?
NICK: I sure hope that you're asking for advice on the plant and not the girlfriend because that is way outside my expertise. As far as the plant is concerned, when it fell down to the ground, chances are the roots dislodged from the soil. We have to tell the roots "Hey, it's ok! We're going to take care of you". Firstly, you need to pick the plant up. Kind of push the soil down a little bit so that there's a little bit of hugging going on. After that, you want to get yourself some vitamin b1 with a fish hydrolysate. This right here would be perfect to let the roots know that "Hey, it's okay, you're going to live". Water away, cross your fingers, let's see what happens.
