DIY: Silverleaf Cherub

Yup. I decided to silver leaf him.

BEFORE


AFTER

I used the exact method and supplies I used for the T.V. frame. I never would have thought to make him silver, but Sara mentioned it and I realized what a great idea it was! Thanks Sara!

In other news, the plant in my dining room is turning icky colors and the leaves are falling off at an alarming rate.



Any idea what could be wrong with it? The soil was dry, so it's not overwatered, but I just watered it Saturday, so it's not underwatered... Fertilizer maybe? I've had it since last September (I think) and I've never fertilized it, do house plants need fertilizer?

Angel looks great!!! That was a great suggestion! Not sure about the fertilizer, but it may just need to get rid of some leaves, plus the sunlight is changing?

Sorry I have no plant advice, all my plants die on me no matter what I do:(

Mist your plant with water. I'm afraid it might have spider mites. Look for little webs. If you find them, get that plant out of your house or it will infect all your other plants.

Take it outside, away from other plants, and wash the entire plant with soap and water. Yep...soap and water. It will kill the spiders. Keep it outside, then mist it again in a few days. If you see more webs, wash it again.

As long as you continue to find webs on it, don't bring it back into the house.

Does it get enough light? I would pull off the dead leaves and let it sit outside while it's warm. That will liven it right up. I've heard that even house plants need some outdoor time, so I give it to them. =)

Love the silver leaf. Great idea.
