Browning/Yellowing leaves
#BlueStarFern I’m a new plant owner so I’m not sure why this is happening :( I just noticed since it is kind of hidden underneath. The leaves are yellowing/browning coming from the stem
1ft to light, direct
10” pot with drainage
Last watered 2 days ago

Looks like it’s being attacked by some type of fungal disease. I would remove the leaves that are infected to avoid further spread, and I would make this homemade remedy to spray on your plants:

Make a typical baking soda spray by dissolving one teaspoon of baking soda into one quart of water. You can add a few drops of insecticidal soap or liquid soap to help the solution spread and stick to the leaves. Only use liquid soap, not laundry detergent.
@kscape Thank you, I will try this.
The white dots are a characteristic of the plant. Did you just get it? Mine did the same thing when I brought her home. She was adjusting. She was also root bound pretty bad. Mine also need to be water badly lol. But the leaves could just be her adjusting or being over/under watered. I get brown leaves too and I just pick them off.
@user1772f491 I got it a few weeks ago but just moved in the past week and she is now in a different spot with more sunlight. I also have had brown leaves that I picked off but these ones seem different than the typical ones I’ve had. I tried what the other user suggested and maybe that will help.
@kscape Thank you so much for this advice!! Since I sprayed him with that mixture I have not seen any new infected leaves. I appreciate it!
