  1. If you notice that the leaves drop for no reason, it may be because it does not have enough water or has been exposed to colder places.
  2. If, on the other hand, you notice that the stem or leaves rot near the substrate, it is because they received a greater amount of water. To recover it, remove the damaged parts and let the soil dry and then resume the corresponding irrigation.
  3. If you notice that the leaves have dried somewhere, it is because at some point of the day it is receiving direct sunlight.
  4. If whitish spots appear on the back of the leaves, it is because it has contracted the cotton mealybug.
  5. If the leaves have a yellowish color and when you touch them you notice that they turn into dust, surely they have been attacked by mites. Try to spray the leaves more often, so these insects will be absent.
