Hi. Found out , by this site, thank you, what type of plant I have. Now, this is a pic up close what's going on? Can anyone let me know? Can it be saved?

The interesting thing about your plant is the yellow spots seem to be on the older part of each stem. Am I seeing that right? Did it have an infestation of some sort of sucky bugs (scale, mealy bugs, spider mites, aphids) last summer?

Thanks for responding back. I brought it in last fall and that's when I noticed this. What can I do? I don't want to lose this plant. Sighing!

If the new growth doesn't have spots, I would not be concerned. It really does look like your plant was attached by some sort of sucky bugs. If you take it out this summer, watch for bugs.
