Q. Troubled Trees

My money tree’s leaves are turning brown and falling off. Why? My Majesty palm looks parched. I’ve misted it and gave it more water. Its recovery is too slow. There are now worms in the soil! Help!

The money tree could be developing a fungus. Treat the plant with fungicide and see if this helps. Also remove affected leaves. In addition, something could be restricting the roots, preventing them from taking up water. This could be true of the palm too, especially if worms are in the plant soil. You may need to repot in fresh soil.

Q. money tree plant

I purchased a small money tree plant about a year ago and just replanted it. It came with a tie to hold the breaded stems. In order for this to grow larger, does this tie need to be removed or replace with (1) just a little looser? The plant is only about 18″ high.

Yes, you need to replace the tie so that it doesn't cut into the tree stems as they grow. At some point you will be able to remove the tie because the stems will be permanently entwined.

Q. Money plant or Epipremnum aureum

I am residing in Dubai where temperature in summer time is approx. 40 to 50 degree Celsius. Can you suggest how I can take care of my money plant in this temperature, as some stems are already yellow and leaves are getting brown…and also some stems are growing but no leaves are coming in?

This is a good example of why one should use the Latin names of plants. If you had only said money plants, I would have thought of Pachira aquatica, what we call money tree here. E. aureum is commonly called pothos in the US. All that aside, yellowing stems and browning leaves are usually a sign that the pothos is getting too little water, and/or too much light. Temperature is not much of a factor. When you water, allow a run off of 1/2" (1.27 cm) to remain in the saucer; the soil will take it up in a day or two. Here's an article with more info on pothos: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/pothos/pothos-plant-care.htm

Q. i have a money plant and the leaves are falling off

I have a money plant and the leaves are falling off but the other one I have seems ok.

I don't know what kind of plant you're referring to -- there are at least half a dozen plants that have "money plant" attached to them as a common name. However, if leaves are falling off a plant, the first thing to investigate is the soil. It might be too wet or too dry. Test the moisture in the bottom of the pot especially -- this is where the roots are. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/testing-moisture-in-plants.htm
