Hi all,

Our money tree (photo attached) has dark patches on a lot of the leaves yet is sprouting lots of new ones. Is this ok or is something wrong with the plant?

Thanks in advance.

Have you any pix of the overall plant? Looks like leaves just getting old to me. The plant does seem to be in good health from the pix you posted.

Looks a little spindly to me, wants more light. Dark spots could be physical damage, over watering???
With enough light you well have compact growth.

Hello ab_nice, it is good to know that it is sprouting new leaves, so the plant is recovering.
Where was it typically growing before, indoors or outdoors? How often were you watering it and if you can show a more complete photo of entire plant and the container where it is in please.

It almost looks like they were burned, but I don't think the sun is strong enough this time of hear to do that type of damage.
