My umbrella tree leaves are turning black and falling off really fast. What do I need to do to take care of this. I have it on the inside of the house beside a large window where the blinds are open 8 to 12 hr a day, on the north side of the house. Thanks

If leaves turn black and begin dropping off it?s a good signal the soil is staying too wet or moist. On the flip side when leaf tips wrinkle if they are too dry. Make sure the container is not sitting in a saucer of water and be sure to allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. I hope your plant recovers soon!
