Is my money tree dying?
I brought these 2 plants home 2 days ago and they are in very poor condition. Any advice or reasoning as to why the leaves are almost translucent with white spots?
My first instinct is that it looks like the leaves froze from the sickly green leaf color. Money plant is somewhat temperamental. It likes bright but indirect sunlight. It needs consistent temps and moisture levels but not too wet, especially in a container. And it doesn't like to be moved around. Once you find the spot that meets its needs, don't move it; certainly don't be tempted to take it outside on nice days. Money plant can get infested with scale insects, mealybugs, aphids and spider mites so check your plant thoroughly. Lastly, you should check the roots for signs of trouble whether pest related or rotten roots. Your containers appear small which is typical of store brought plants. While repotting in a slightly larger container, examine the roots. If these leaves fall off, new ones will emerge unless the roots are rotting.
