We have a African Firestick, Our problem is that after several years of growing great it is now wilting, turning brown, dropping brunches..... Not sure what is happening here, please help with any info.... It is a beautiful plant, start out as one stick and is now about 3ft tall and about 2ft or more area. Thanks, Mel and David

Give it a very careful examination and tell us what you find. Are there any bugs (size, shape, location on plant)? Moldy looking patches, leaves dying from base or tip? What's the soil like? What changed in the plant's life recently (different window/room? new watering schedule? recently repotted?)? On the face of it, it sounds like an overwatering thing, but I can't imagine you just starting to overwater after years of good growth. Tell us more and we'll try to help.
