You get home to find your plant looking like this. What happened? What to do? In this case, the plant was sunburned by putting it directly outside without getting it used to the light gradually. In this case, it’s not going to come back from the stems but might come back from the roots. It should get cut down and watered well, and left in a shady spot to see if it recovers.
