I wouldn’t fertilize her, fertilizing an already stressed plant can cause more harm. repotting, if unnecessary, is the same. I’m sure you’ve already checked for signs of disease but maybe a 2nd look would be helpful. Lastly, since I think that’s a browning leaf, your watering schedule may need some adjustment. Hang in there! πŸ’šπŸͺ΄
How long has it been in this pot? And how often is it watered?
@skyhighsplants it has been in the pot for since april. I water it every 2 weeks
@Vallgaleano can you see any roots coming out of the bottom of the pot? It shouldn't be root bound yet but maybe
@skyhighsplants i dont see any roots😫. Should i add fertilizer or something?
Welcome to Greg! The Song of India is sensitive to the chemicals in tap water. Use purified or distilled water.
@DesertRainey thank youuu!
Can i ask how do i look for sings of disease?πŸ₯΄
Check the stems and leaves for signs of infestation. It can be something as simple as small dots or slight webbing. You can google plant pests and look alongside your plant if you see anything other than the normal green of your plant.
My Song of India was doing the same thing until I changed it’s water. I stated using distilled or purified water. It’s doing so much better now. Good luck.
