Hmmmm, so my flowerpot was dying rapidly. I lost literally about 60% of it in less than a week. Well I took what I thought was a drastic measure today, and busted out the Dremel with the rotary saw attachment. I cut most of the flowerpots dead 60% off, fortunately only one side died, rather than the whole 60% of the lower end. I have it sitting on its flat side that I just cut, on my sand bed, and now its doing well. Its night time, and its little tentacles are out even. I Didnt think itd work THAT well THAT fast.
