Help Me Save My Plant
Hello I’ve recently noticed my house plant started to droop. I fed it water and fertiliser yesterday and it had no effect, so I put it under a lamp and no effect. I don’t believe it had any pests. I checked, but what should I do? thank you for your help

I'm sorry, but your photo did not come through. It will be hard to say what happened, but usually overwatering, then mistakingly overwatering again to compensate will start the process. Feeding will put more stress on the plant, causing it to shrivel and die.
If the soil is not completely bone dry and the plant is limp, the first thing will be to make sure that the plant has time to dry out quite a bit between waterings (depending on the exact plant)
The next thing to check will be cold tolerance of the plant, and how low the temps are around it.
Too much light can be another cause, but not usually.
