Q.Black Bat Flower With Brown Leaf Tips

Zone Zone 9 | Blainehw added on May 20, 2022 | Answered

I keep it on my patio (under cover) and it gets a few hours of morning sun/indirect sunlight I try to keep the soil slightly moist and it’s in the recommended soil The edges of the leaves are turning brown and sort of crinkling and yes they are slightly older leaves but I’m worried because this is the second one I’ve tried to grow & it’s a young plant.

I would look to one or more of a few things:

Either the soil moisture is slightly too moist in the center, or too dry on the edges (Confusing, I know), Or the humidity is too low for the plant's liking.

Another thing to consider is that these plants require constant feeding. Acid loving plant fertilizers are best.
