Q.Why Are The Topmost Leaves Of My Adenium Plant Turning Yellow Then Brown?
It had happened once before but I just pruned the top branch off, hoping it would go away. I also observed that the leaves at the bottom were turning yellowish green. The underside of the leaves also seems to have small black dots, I think they’re just dirt since they easily came off when I brushed the leaves, but I’m not so sure about it. Also, The topmost leaves suddenly fell as I was checking the underside of the leaves. I live in a tropical country and it’s usually 27°~32°C (or about 80°~90°F) in here.
