Avoid watering from above and directly into the center of the plant.
This can cause root rot.
Allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings. Pull back any mulch at least 6 inches from the base of the plant.
Remove and discard any leaves that have dropped, this can help stop the spread of fungus or leaf diseases.
Look for any markings on the leaves.
