Q. Sticky Substance on Leaves

I have a rather large Parasol plant, which lately has a sticky almost sap-like substance on the leaves. I’ve also noticed very small, flat, hard, brown things on some of the leaves, which I can wipe off. There are also brown bumps on the stems of the plant as well. The plant is also losing leaves. Any thoughts on what is wrong with my plant and how to fix it?

Parasol plant? Scheffleras are commonly known as umbrella plant or umbrella tree, so that might be what you have. But also, there is currently being marketed a plant known as Mandevilla sun parasol, or parasol pink mandevilla. Is this what you have? If so, these are not indoor plants, although since they're tropicals they can't take a northern winter. You might try letting it go dormant - keep it in a spot protected from freezing temps (basements are often used) and water very sparingly. like once a month. It will quickly lose all its leaves, but when you put it back outside in the spring and start watering it fully, it should come back.

Q. parasol palm leaves drooping

I have Parasol palm about 4ft in 10 liter pot here in India in March summer days. I water day after day, but from 5 days ago I forgot watering, and the result is leaves are drooping and shrinking, not yellowing and not brown. Only shrinks and droops. Is this major problem? How can I save it?

A Parasol Palm can be located in a partial sun location.
You can resume watering and see if the palm can recover from the lack of moisture.
Your palm should have moist soil and high humidity.
