Leaves Black on Edge

graycamJanuary 30, 2008


I have an AV. It's growing new leaves in the center, but the older leaves are turning black and wilting on the edges.

I recently brought the AV from home to work. The day I moved it was very cold - it was a 15 min walk to work. Could that have shocked it?

Should I chop off the blackening leaves?

Sure sounds like it got too cold. Remove the dying leaves and give it some TLC.

Yeah, I lost a few leaves to the cold. That's the great thing...these things grow back so fast!
