well not to good really I have cut it back to the main stems and alot of hope, could be the root rot due the the amount of rain the compost is still soaking 8ins down from the top.

Guess just have to wait and see, shame really had really nice flowers on it as well :(

turgid = mean it do not hang the leaves (leaves on full tank, not half dried out). If the plant hang in the morning it's most probably Phytopthora,  the roots will be brown and dead.
When looking at plants the experienced plants-man will see the leaves has lost their gloss, often colour towards olive-green (most easy to see in conifers)
Many potting mixes contain slow release fertilizers and if stored to long they may have a very high salt level (conductivity) and will burn the roots or cause browning along the edges of the leaves.
As plants breathe with their roots it may come from over watering, this is the most common way of killing house plants.
Never water more than 3 times a week!

How do it look today??
