Hi.. just wanna check with experts here as I am new to gardening... what does the droopy tip in the photo mean? I have read somewhere that if the tip droops it means I need to water it. I just watered the rosemary yesterday but today it is still drooping..

Am I still under watering? I have abit if phobia to water because my previous pot died due to overwinter.

If you have a few plants in that pot, those plants that are still drooping may have root rotting problem.

If it's root rotting problem, how do I rectify? Do I need to separate them out?

What type of soil is used? If it's compost, then no need to water so much just give more sun and see if the rotting plants recover. If not then cut off those plants at their bases as close as possible to their roots. Healthy plants should not be affected.

Ops, actually I am not sure what potting mix is it cause this pot is originally from the nursery... didn't ask abt the soil at that time.

hmm.. maybe I will try to give it more sun first and see if the condition improves?

you can do stem cutting if the plant is suffering from root cutting.

Yah, if they're like lavender plants where they die within a few days of purchasing from the nurseries, make many cuttings asap. Cuttings will more likely acclimatise and survive.
