Unsure what problem I have

Recommended Posts

Hi oldmate,


Good place to start is with dingos advice.


Looking for bugs may help also. The stippling on the leaves and the state of the petiole on that main fan in your pic can indicate trouble with bugs.

leaf hoppers, thrips, mites, etc etc. some bugs are super difficult to see with the naked eye. 


Be sure to check the leaf undersides. A loupe is a great piece of kit for this sort of stuff.

Try holding the plant over a pice of plain white paper almost on the horizontal and flick the main stem. You may be surprised at what falls out. The dust/dirt like bits that land on the paper may move.
