Desert Rose Plants

Desert Rose

Anonymous added on July 18, 2015 | Answered

I've had my plant for about 6 weeks. It was blooming at the time. Since then it has stopped blooming and has actually dropped buds and the leaves look dry and brittle. I don't have a lot of sunlight in my home, but I have it in my kitchen window where it gets a small amount of natural sunlight but I do have a bright fluorescent light on all day. I have noticed a few little bugs on it.
