As Title I have a sma Yuacca tree, in my bedroom, it is not ideal conditions, as it dosent get a lot of light but its never overwatered and is left to dry out between watering.
The Problem is it is looseing leaves from the bottem upwards at a very fast rate, they turn yellow and then rown then dry up and fall down but dont fall off.
The rest of the leraves still look fine and the tips are mostly green with only very slight browniong at the very tip.
I assumed it was a light issue but I know Yuaccas like strong light but can live well without direct light (I get indirect bright light in the morning for a short time aka sunrise, then once the sun has lifted above the house i just get very little light but its never in shadow.)
However just now i have noticed tiny (1-3mm) white bugs, look like small spiders with less legs, they are almost translucent but i dont want to get to close XD!
I dont have anyware to put my plant were it can get more light, I cheack my plant everyday and not noticed these before today? WTF? could these be the reason it is dyeing,
I have not cheacked the roots or soil but I will likly repot with come fast draining soil, but i want to get rid of the Bugs first.
I am used to black flys and know they are not pests just from soil, when i used to have a money tree but these are diffrent and are on the leaves and stay in the middle of the plant?
What can I do?
sorry for being vauge if you need more inform nation please ask.
I got this plant as I just cant seem to keep my plants alive! and this look like a nice simple one.
I have had from cactus (died from a bug infestation that i could not see at the roots)
Bromeliads (I did not know how to lookafter them anbd they are tricky ones.)
I still have two moeny trees but one died from overwatrering! OOPS!
As you can see I SUCK at keping plants and should proberly be kept away from them =(
