Hi, I am super worried about my ivy plant. I bought it a few weeks ago and it looks like is already dying!
The leaves have these brownish, almost black, areas all over the plant, especially the upper part. It also had white powder all over it, which I suppose was powdery mildew, which seems to have decreased.
I have been removing the damaged leaves and spraying a solution of bicarbonate of soda, with liquid soap and water (which are the white marks on the leaves).
New leaves keep showing these black areas, get weak, dry out and fall off, it just not getting any better.
The plant is indoor and I try to water when the soil is dry, nevertheless, I may watered inappropriate at the beggining. Also I've got the plant just when Homebase just reopened (due to covid19), which means most of the plant were unattended for a while.
Why is this happening and how do I prevent and cure it?
I will appreciate any help,
Thank you for your time,
