Hi! I have a pachira aquatica plant for a week now. I watered it for the first time yesterday and plan on doing so once a week. It sits outside in the patio with partial shade and sun.

Anyway, I noticed brown spots starting to appear and the side of the leaves are curling up. It may be under watered but I just want to make sure that this is not a pest infection. I noticed flies leaving black spots on the leaves. Also noticed the underside of the leaves with black lines. What does this mean? The plant is in Los Angeles , CA.

HI & welcome! Has it been hot where you are? A small pot like that can dry in 1-3 days in high temps.

Hi Purpleinpop!

It has in the low to mid 80 degrees. It may be underwatered. But I'd like to also make sure that it's not because of pests?

I'll water the plant again in. The next day or so. :)
