Hello everyone,

I was wondering if my money plant is alright since it seems to be fine overall but some leaves are curved and some look funny in the sun (see pictures)

I thought that the curved leaves might be caused by to much or to little watering?
I was away for a few weeks and my sister cared for my plants so I don't know how much she watered them.


I would appreciate every help,
Have a wonderful day,
Emi

The brown patches may be sunburn. How much direct sun is it getting?

Hi WillC,

The plant has recieved some direct sun light (morning sun) and I therefore changed it's position 2 Week ago. Now it get's no direct sun but a lot of light.

Do you now something about the curved leaves?

Thank you for your help,

Emi

The cupping of leaves is normal for this plant although it can be aggravated in too much sun or improper watering.

Its new location is good, but leaves already affected by the excess sun will not improve.

How do you decide when to water and how much do you then give it?

Hello Will,

I water it when the top of the soil is completely dry and give it water until it comes out of underneath the pot. I don't let it stand in water.
My tap water it quite hard, might that be a problem?

Hard water is a problem because it has excess minerals that can accumulate in the soil and damage or burn tender roots. The mineral concentration increases over time and is aggravated if the soil gets too dry. Use filtered or distilled water instead. And make sure the soil does not get dry much below the surface.
