Purple/Brown Leaves
by: Stephanie

I have a potted milkweed plant with leaves that have started to brown. It receives full sun and a daily watering. What is this browning and how can I address the issue? Also, it should be flowering at this time in the summer, but has not. Is this a sign that my plant is dying? Should I prune it?

I am not sure what type of milkweed plant you have but I am wondering if the plant has had too much moisture? Just a thought...maybe let it dry out a little between waterings.
