  • I have recently had several questions about how to create a blog article on iCultivate. I believe that it is quite an easy process, but I have created a video (see below) that I hope will guide you through it.

    Some key things to remember:

    • Always include images - even if it is just the "Post Cover" image. Images provide interest and make your article stand out for the reader.
    • Take care with how you lay out what you are writing - position any images well; ensure that you use paragraphs where appropriate; and then there is always your punctuation - always ensure that this is included.
    • Proof read what you have written! Always imagine you are someone else who is reading it - does it read well, does it make sense?

    The following video guides you through two ways that you can write your blog article on iCultivate:



    Once finished, publish your blog and it will then be available for other iCultivate community members to read, or you can choose to have it visible to the whole world if you like.

    If you would like your article to be featured on the front page of iCultivate, please send me a message and we can then work together and discuss the next steps.

    Your soil options sound suitable - something that will retain the moisture without becoming waterlogged.

    With regards to removing the dead foliage, I would recommend not cutting it off, but pulling it off - that will remove the stub at the bottom as well and not leave a section that might retain water. You can see me doing this in the following video:

    Oh dear, that doesn't look very unhappy!

    Generally, it doesn't look like a disease. I notice that there does appear to be some relatively healthy growth towards the back, near the bottom. This suggests to me that it is very recoverable.

    The first thing I would do is remove it from the current pot and either transplant it into the ground, or into a larger pot - at least 4 or 5 times bigger than the existing pot. Give it some fresh potting mixture (well draining) and a good water.

    Keep the soil moist, but not saturated.

    Also, I would remove all the dead growth - don't just pull of the leaves, actually remove by cutting the stem below the dead growth, leaving just what I believe will be healthy stem - new growth buds should emerge in a month or two.

    After a month or two, I would hope you would see improvement.
