I had posted a while back about a plant I came home to who had nothing left but a semi-alive branch with no leaves left. I managed to get it to grow again, but I'm noticing that where I had trimmed off the dead part of the branch, most of the leaves are turning yellow and it is dying again. It seems as well to be moving down the branch and affecting other areas. It also appears that parts of the middle of the branch are dying as well. I'm not sure what to do as I feel if I cut anymore it's just going to keep spreading and/or kill the plant....here are some pictures:

Didn't get a great picture but you can see the brown/dead area starting at the top end of the branch and the leaves turning yellow:

Here you can see how the middle is starting to turn brown:

And here you can see how spotty the damage is, there's a big space between the dead areas:

Any help is much appreciated :)

What kind of plant is that? A silk tree living in a pot? Where in the world is this plant located? Can you go to the little blue man up there in the right hand corner and update your info to include a location?

Hi, updated my location... actually not sure what the name of this plant is but it survived well in a pot for a few years...I had to leave home unexpectedly for a long period of time and that's when it started having problems
