Plant is loosing foliage - Knowledgebase Question

Naperville, Il
Question by malishkaju

A friend of mine was killing her plant that I identified as Umbrella Tree: they put it in bedroom with almost no light. The plant was not properly watered either. So it lost almost all the foliage. I took it in hope of saving it. Is it still possible? What should I do?
Thanks, Yulia.

I think it's worth a try - with any luck you'll save the plant. Start by setting it in an area with bright light and watering thoroughly, then allowing the top of the soil to dry out before watering again. In a few weeks you should see new leaves. I hope it's soon!
