Hi everyone!

I am having some problems with a plant at home: at least a couple of beetles (silverly green color) fly off of it every single day and some of the leaves are developing dark looking spots. Can somebody help me? I really would like to get rid of the beetles flying in my living room and of course find out how to treat my plant to have nice green leaves. Thank you for your help!!!

Leaf blotches may be a symptom of over-watering, or some other problem with the plant's roots. If saturated soil is not the problem, then the beetles might be eating your plant's roots. If you dig down into the potting soil, can you see grubs or pupae that might be hatching into beetles?
