The Q&A Archives: Falling leaves

Question: We have a large flowing tree, the flowers resemble orchids, this year for some reason the leaves are all falling off and some of the small branches have become brittle. Am I over or under watering. Help!

Answer: Could be underwatering if the branches are brittle. I'd closely inspect the falling leaves and the branch tips for insect activity, just to rule out a heavy infestation of aphids or other pests.
