Q.Can Someone Tell Me Why My Plants Are Dying?

Zone San Francisco, CA 94109 | Anonymous added on February 16, 2021 | Answered

I have two plants inside where the leaves are turning yellow. One is a Money Plant (Guiana Chestnut) and the other time believe is a Palm. I live in San Francisco and usually leave the curtains open for them to get enough sunlight, however right now they both look like they are slowly dying. Can someone please advise me on how often I should be watering these as well as how often I should be giving them sunlight? Pictures included for context.

I notice you are using cache pots. When you water, do you remove the interior container and allow the excess water to drain before returning to the outside container? If not, your plants may be sitting in water, which can lead to root rot. I would check on that as well as how often you are watering. The money tree needs specific care, including humidity. Check the care articles below and compare those with your plant's care. Also, the browning leaves can be removed. If more than 1/3 of the leaves are affected, gradually remove the leaves so as not to shock it.
