Q.What Is Wrong With This Sapote?
this is a seed-grown plant, about a year old, has been inside to date. Until recently, the plant seemed healthy. About 2 weeks ago the leaves started turning yellow, with brown dead spots. The new leaves are green. While it looks as though something has been spilt on it, I don’t believe that has happened. I have just given it to someone who can put it outside at least during the day. Can anyone tell me what may be wrong, and what to do about it?
