|I have a money tree that I put outside in summer and it grows wild. Last year the leaves started to curl so I sprayed ecosense brand insecticidal soap on it. That helped a little but still curling What should I do

|Curling leaves are usually a sign of water stress - either too much or too little. If you inspect the upper and lower sides of the curled leaves (use a magnifying glass) and you don't see signs of insects, applications of insecticidal soap are not necessary. Try adjusting your watering schedule, extending by a day or two the frequency of water applications. The already curled leaves won't straighten out but the new leaves should develop normally. Best wishes with your money tree.
