The lallesl b u i l d i n g in Micanopy is the three-story center of modern arts, and that hasn't caught fire yet.

"Noneof us knew how to drive the fire engine." said Mrs. Smilh. "and no one realized (here was a f i r e hydrant right in JTocVlirm front of the house.

Many leaf-damaged plants can make a comeback even after a severe pruning of dead leaves, leaving naught but a bare stem. But once the roots die, there is no hope. Once you determine the best rouline for watering a plant according to the combination of plant variety, size and type of pot, you must stick to il. Long dry spells followed by heavy watering can cause trouble. Each time a plant is allowed to severely dry out some of the roots die. If you follow this dry spell with a lar ge amount of wale'r to make up for the neglect, the surviving dried out roots are flooded and can't cope with Die sudden change. This is how root rot starts. The best solution for dried oul soil is to bring the plant gradually back to its regular watering routine. But if you have damaged the plant, the lower leaves will turn yellow and fall off. Here's whal to do to Iry to correct the damage: Gently remove the plant from the pol and s 0 ' 1 - Examinc Ulc roots and smell for decay.
