Hi all,

My son bought a pot of flowers, some flowers are white and some purple.
name of the plant - unknown but it could be petunia
We had the plant for a few months.

Then I watered it with washed rice water, the plant turned brown, wilted a few days. Flushing the pot did not save it and the plant died.
We pulled the dead and brittle plant from the pot and the pot contains just the soil.
Some weeks after pulling away the dried plant, I see young baby plants.

Are these weeds? or babies from the parent plant see attached pix

How is it that washed rice water caused it to die when rice water is good for
watering plants.

Yes those are petunias. Try getting neem oil because this plants attract lots of whiteflies. I'm not sure about the rice water though.

EDIT:Save as many seedling as you can. One seedling can become massive enough to cover the whole pot with flowers if you care for it properly.

Strange my petunias don't have any white flies. Anyway the plants have very sticky leaves. White flies won't stand a chance.

The water used for cooking rice may contain useful nutrients and starch. The water used to rinse dry rice, may contain arsenic washed off the rice, which in sufficient quantities could make plants sick or kill them.
