Hello, I need your help identifying this plant and how to care for it. He is slowly dying 😐
This plant has been in our office for 2 years but the previous owner left work so the plant became mine but it has slowly begun to decline. Im thinking its because hes been watered so much but I dont know.
I have changed the pot (because the original pot didnt have any holes) and I changed the soil too. I dont know what else to do??? I'm praying someone can help me

Hi Mo. Welcome.

So sorry about the plant. It looks like a tree. The last owner didnt say something about it ?

My wild guess its a young mahogany (Swietenia mahogani). ☺

No she didnt say anything about how she cared for it lol... this is how it looked when it started to get sick (end of April).
I found out alot of co-workers were watering him and when I changed the pot he was full of water.
I dont know what to do Confused Sad

I doubt it can be saved. Throw it out and buy something new and healthy! All my co-workers have strict instructions not to touch or water my plants :)

It sounds like a lovesick plant. I'm thinking, it was given more than water too.
