Help! How do I take care of this?


I am the world's worst at caring for plants. My five year old son gave this to me for mother's day. It was a puny little plant in a paper cup. It grew and flourished for several months, but now it looks like this. What can I do to save it?

    Thank you Pamela. It is on the front deck which gets the full hot beach sun most of the day. I water it probably 3 times weekly. I do not even know what kind of plant it is to look up care on the web. I will try repotting. Plant illiterate. Lol.

    It has been out of the paper cup since my son brought it home, but I am thinking it must need a bigger pot. Thank you. I did not know if I was watering too much or not enough. The pot it is in does drain. My son thinks it is peeing! LOL.
