Q.Disease On Indoor Plants

Zone 43542 Sweden | SellyC added on June 3, 2021 | Answered

Hello Some of my leaves especially on my tropical plants are looking very weird and I cannot find any insects on them. Some have light shine through the leaves, some are getting yellow very quickly and some have dried border on the leaves. Could it be too much/too little water or not enough nutrients, too much or too little light or just simply disease. please help as i don’t know the difference so not sure how to care for them. thanks Selly

Unfortunately, your photos did not come through, and without a detailed description of their care, It would be hard to say. The symptoms are common with over and underwatering, not enough light, too much or too little food, too much or too little humidity, and a number of other factors, depending on how it looks and where the damage is presented on the plant.

Each plant will have a very specific care, so it will be necessary to provide that based on each individual species.

Most plants require the soil to be bone dry down to about 2 or 3 inches between waterings, so that is a good rule to follow in most cases.
