Brown blotches on our Office plant
Posted by joanne ( from Ottawa, Canada on 2002-04-01 12:38:19

I do not know the name of the plant It just keeps on getting more and more brown blotches on the leaves then they fall It has just happened in the last week only, it has had lots of water not too much. Help because if it looses any more leaves we will only have branches left....SOS

    Most often this is the result of an insect, spider mites, aphids, mealybugs, scale, although they could also be caused by cultural conditions, too much or too little water, drafts, improper lighting (could be too much or too little,) potbound roots (can't get adequate moisture), or nutrient starvation. Which plant would offer somewhat of a clue but real diagnoses needs to be done on site by someone that knows indoor plants.
