Why
Why is my dwarf umbrella tree getting like this? :(
0ft to light, indirect
10” pot with drainage
Last watered 1 week ago
@Terrah2 I have one too and how I’ve keep mine happy was keeping it moist, making sure it gets lots of light, and placing it in a room with a humidifier! I think perhaps it’s not enough water? It looks a little crispy to me!
Building off of @ShinyBudew , how much light is it getting currently?
@ShinyBudew I’ve never kept it moist. So definitely making note of that. I’ve had it for a year now, and this is the first time it’s done this. πŸ˜“
@caleb I keep it inside by a window where it gets indirect light all day.
@Terrah2 oh no!!! Perhaps it had enough of being thirsty πŸ˜‚ but I would see if some additional water helps and go from there! πŸ˜‹
@Terrah2

If there are crisp, brown spots or patches on the leaves, underwatering is likely the cause. If there are soft, dark-brown areas, the plant is receiving too much water. If the foliage has straw-colored spots or patches, the cause could be watering with cold water, water splashing on the leaves or too much sun.
@ShinyBudew I hope that’s the cause. πŸ˜… How often do you water yours?
@Terrah2 honestly I have a bonsai version of the dwarf umbrella tree so it’s quite small, I was bottom watering it for 20 minutes about every 2 weeks, but this last time I was lazy and too watered and will probably either bottom water once every 2 weeks or too water every 1 week ish!
@KikiGoldblatt wonderful explanation 🀩 I learned something new too!
Lol
