What kind of soil? I put must first one (recently) in half potting soil, half off the shelf manure compost (that was strangely sandy). It's doing great. Just hose it down or spray it regularly.

I've also watered weekly with Alaskan fish food and Superthrive. I think its your soil. What about lighting? I know the common wisdom is not much light, but mine is doing great with some full sunlight during the day (late aft sun). Just don't shock it.

my 2 cents

salvia loves a more porous soil... ie: sand or mixed with peat moss.

and yes, some "low wattage" sunlight (late afternoon evening sun) would definitely benefit your plant.

when you touch the soil, is it moist or is it wet?

basically i was giving it some sun from the east on my window sill.. i think i was a little too sparing with the water.. i never gave it a good soaking mostly just alot of misting. my mom mentioned making a gravel pool as opposed to using a humidy tank . and leaving it in the air. anyone ever use this method with salvia.. thanks for the help everyone i really appreciate it . salvia is my best teacher and favorite plant ally and it bums me to see this thing like this.

never tried the gravel pool, but EVERY plant needs to be watered at least a couple of times a week, once at the least, silly face.

good luck nursing it back to health :thumbup: , remember that it is possible, ive seen brown plants come back from the dead before.

dont give up on it, but dont get to overzealous with the water now that you think its dying, just try to keep it regular.

my room is actually suffering lots of dryness cus my ballast is in my closet i got to get it out of here. i thought maybe with the humidity tent the salvia would be ok with it. could this have killed her? it was away from the ballast by my windowsill. i have lots of other plants in here that dont seem to be suffering from the dryness . i was thinking about using a humidifier but i have some cacti so ive been reluctant.

Yah that one is most likely going to die.

They love humidty at first, just make a tent with some o2 or air circulation or else they get like that. Don't soak the soil, they hate it. Did you just get the plant, it helps to not transplant it at first and let it adjust to the environment before transplanting.

it seems you're watering too much...
let her dry a bit and she'll be stiffy.
this is the number 1 death cause for most salvia d!

Many people have found that talking to their plants, encourages them to grow. I've taken this a step further in my gardening activities, by listening to what the plants have to say to me. If you've developed your emapthic faculties to any degree at all, you should at least attempt this.

Small & young plants can empathicly vibe at you, information concerning soil/water/light conditions. Larger established plants tend to small-talk about the weather, & the activities of local critters. Old trees & large cactuses may discourse on larger matters. Not that this information will carried over to you in regular human language, but if you are a true emapth, you can pick up on many things through these impressions.

I use this in all of my gardening activities with great success. For example, when a tree needs pruning, I listen to what the tree has to "say" on the subject, and let the tree direct exactly where & how I am to cut. I also use this empathic ability in the grocery store, when selecting fruits & veggies...

Just what did you think was really going on when you've done Entheogens? I find that the plants get off on those experiences, as much as we do...
