I am loosing leaves faster than they are added. At first I thought what I was seeing matched a post about spider mites so I did an every other day treatment with a mild soap solution and the damage just progressed. Typically when bottom leafs yellow and fall off I suspect over watering. But in this case the leaves look a little mottled and occasionally there is a hole in a leaf.

Any thoughts on saving ???

If theres a decent root system fertilize it . Doesn't look like its going to die will probably shoot up new green cane.

Things are looking up. I used the wrong potting mix most likely because I have not watered it for two weeks and they are looking better, soil still moist an inch down. I am checking the soil every couple days and when it is time to water again I will follow your suggestion and give it a light feeding.
Thanks, Ed
