Desert Rose needs help............

Austin, TX(Zone 8b)

My plant was doing fine until this winter in the greenhouse. I think it got mold or something on it. dark and leaves are very unhappy.

This is what it looked like when it went into the greenhouse..... I'll try and take a pic soon of how dark it is now. What can I do?

Looks like the pot is too small for it at the very least.

I agree with Nancy, the pot is probably too small. When you are having trouble with the leaves you should first consider a problem with the roots. If your plant has been in that pot for more than 2 years it would help a lot to remove it, check the roots, trim the bad ones and them repot in a larger container with a very fast draining mix. Be sure to let the roots dry and harden a few days before repotting it and then hold off with any water for a week or two and then go easy. Its a very pretty plant. Good luck.
