Triostar - Common Problems

The leaves are turning yellow: As a plant matures they lose their bottom foliage. This is completely normal and unavoidable. If the upper leaves are turning yellow, you may need to reassess your watering routine or move the plant away from direct sunlight.

There are dark brown spots on the edges of the leaves: There are a few problems that create dark brown spots - 1. Low humidity. Monitor the humidity levels in your space, if needed you can increase the humidity by misting or with a humidifier. Keep the plant away from any dry heat sources. 2. Overwatering. Follow the watering instructions - allow the top 2” inches of the soil to dry before watering. 3. Too much sun. Although it enjoys a bright location, it’s best to keep the plant out of direct sunlight.

The leaves are beginning to droop and look very sad: Check the moisture level of the soil. Is it very dry? Prayer Plants prefer a consistent soil moisture level. If the plant becomes too dry, the leaves begin to droop and become almost lifeless.

Signs of Overwatering: New growth becomes soft and brown and the leaves begin to drop.

Common Pests: Spider mites and thrips.
