Schleffera/umbrella tree problems - photo
Have had this plant for a year with no problems. Repotted it 2 months ago and seemed to be OK. However, in the last 6 weeks I started to notice what I thought were water droplets on the leaves. However, when I finally investigated further these droplets are sticky and are definitely not water. The bottom leaves are developing brown spots and then the leaves turn yellow and fall off. I can't see any bugs of any kind (I have taken it outside 3 times and sprayed the leaves well). None of the other plants I repotted are having problems so I don't think I had bad soil. However, something is definitely wrong. The photo attached shows 2 of the leaves after they turn yellow and drop off. (My digital camera at home is not working so I can't show you how the leaves get brown spots and then start to turn yellow. Brought 2 of the dead leaves to work and used the dig camera here).
