When your new flush of leaves comes out, are they brown and mottled looking? That would indicate a Manganese deficiency. If the leaves are green for months and then get bad looking, that could be from other scales that are not the Asian scale you alluded to. Lastly, if mostly the tips start looking bad first, that is more of a lack of water compared to how much sun, or heat you are getting.?
