Had it for a year. Over the last 3 months it's been slowly developing these brown spots that are drying out the leaves.

A total of 6 leaves have fallen off and Im sure more will follow.

All the leaves that have fallen off have a brown stem.

Other leaves have stems that are turning brown that I think will fall off soon.

HOW I CARE FOR IT
  • Water once a week
  • About 2 cups of water (in the pics attached, tree hasn't been watered in about 7 days)
  • Pot has drainage built into it
  • Plant is in indirect sunlight
  • Air in condo is dry so started recently misting leaves every 3 days
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thx!

Mo

You are Definitely watering it waaaayyy too much. Cut back to once a month unless you live in a super dry area then once every 3\4 month. Watch what happens. also check out this video I made on soil. Could help. :)

Thanks for the info. Ive added pics of the soil and the pot it's in. I'm guessing the white stuff on the soil is rot?

Im still at a loss of what to do :(

Change the pot. Cut out the rot (White stuff). Those pots are known for doing that to the roots. They don't drain as well.

I agree with @JoeyGardening change the pot and give it more drainage and cut down on the watering, a lot of people kill their house plants because of it, because they don't know. :)
