For the sake of the plant, please help!

I love plants and flowers. Unfortunately, being in an apartment, we have limited space near windows and our deck. Regardless of space and my not so green thumb, I manage to keep a few around.

However, the last 3 years, I have purchased a Candy Corn Vine.

It is SO adorable with these tiny candy corn flowers.

However, each year, this happens.

The leaves turn brown, and crispy, (not always from the tip up), it stops producing flowers, and then it dies. I don't know what to do. I have tried little water, more water, bigger pot, smaller pot... any ideas?

Oh, and while we are saving my plants, any ideas on how to save an orchid?


  1. oh poor plants. i dont know nothing about candy corn.
    but the orchid, you need to bathe it with sun shine, well that's what i do here.
    hope it'll help.


  2. The candy corn plant is the cutest thing ever. Unfortunately, I am NOT the one to ask about plants. Hope someone can help!

  3. Are you kidding? there are candy corn plants?

  4. Sorry, I'm no help, I kill plants just by looking at them! :( Especially orchids!
