can someone please help me with my arrowhead plant, first it was having yellow leaves, i thought i may be overwatering, so i now check the soil before i water. Now it is having these brown and wilted leaves , could not find anything suspicious. what can be the reason.
Also for my umbrella plant it has lost almost all leaves except few at top since i have got it from nursery. it has new growth but half of new growth also died for the same reason , leaves turning brown curly and falling. i noticed some whit stuff so sprayed it with rubbing alcohol mixture. no more that white stuff and browning of leaves has slowed down but its not going away and not many leaves r left. what can i do about it. this plant was sitting on the side of a window now i have moved it to front of the window about 6-7 feet away.
The Scheff's leaves look like they have hard water deposits or residue from some product applied by the grower/nursery. Being rained on a few times can help that go away but it probably does not rain there often. This plant likes a lot more sunlight than Syngonium.
The soil looks like it may not have any tiny air pockets in it, just solidly packed tiny particles that hold the water in for too long and in high amounts. The roots need air as well as water, so this can cause the roots to rot. If that happens, although the soil is moist, there are not enough roots to deliver moisture to all parts of the plant, so tips and whole leaves can be sacrificed. A mix that is much more chunky and aerated would help the plants grow better and faster.
