Q.Swiss Cheese Plant – curled leaves

Zone 10011 | lilyfbartle added on March 27, 2017 | Answered

I rescued a swiss cheese plant that was living in the dark for a while. When I first got it, many of the leaves had turned yellow (from overwatering?) After putting it in a much brighter spot and removing the yellow leaves, it seems much happier, but many of the leaves are still curled in or limp. I don’t know what to do!

The plant may still be recovering from root damage caused by overwatering. If that's the case, it may take a while for it to perk up as it grows new roots. The best thing to do is simply to make sure it doesn't get overwatered again.

Curling leaves could also happen if there are pests on the leaves or if the humidity is too low in the room, so check these issues as well.
