My mom gave me this giant, old, plant
recently and under my care since July he's going downhill. I desperately would love to save him as he's been around about as long as I have.
Background: This plant
has received regular doses of water once a week of about 1 pint each. He has always sat near the window in a very small amount of direct sunlight. The temperature is always room-temp, so around 70 degrees, and he's grown leaps and bounds for over 2 decades.
My mom gave him to me in July, and he seemed to do well for a couple months, but until recently my mom didn't tell me how much water to give him so I ended up giving him a quart or so each time. Soon he started to look like he was being weighed down a bit, so I gave him about 3 weeks to dry out, but he only seemed to get worse. I thought maybe he was thirsty at that point, so I watered him again with about 2 pints, but his condition seemed to continue to deteriorate. My mom just told me she used to give him 1 pint a week, and that she doesn't know what type of plant
he is so it's been tough to find out how to help him. It's been 2 weeks since I've given him any water, and his soil is still moist.
What do I do at this point? Pics are below.
