Q. Goosefoot Plant

I have got some goosefoot plants. They had become trailers. Last summer I cut off the stems. Now in spring, the plants are not growing and one or two new leaves have come up but they are shriveled. The plants do not look healthy. They are placed outside in a partly shady area. Note: We have received lots of rain recently.

They may have root rot and be dying. This article will explain how to treat it:

Q. Goosefoot Houseplant

Is this plant toxic at all? My 2-year-old grandson took a bite of one leaf – seems to be ok, but am anxious to make sure it won’t harm him.

It is toxic but not lethal. It causes mouth pain if eaten. Please call Poison Control ASAP.

Q. Goosefoot plant

I brought back a goosefoot plant from UK 3 years ago. The plant was grown in water all the time when my late father had it and I kept it in water after I took over. However, about a year ago the plant started to look a bit sad. First of all, the roots were rotten and came off the plant. I washed the plant thoroughly with water. New roots started again. It is not dying but the top branches look dry all the time. It has new leaves coming through but they did not last very long and soon dried out. What is the problem with it? How do I make it better? How should I care for it generally? I don’t want it to die, as it belonged to my late father and it reminds me of him. Any advice you can offer will be appreciated.
