    Hi and welcome to the forum 😊 

    Can you tell us more about your plant?  How long have you had it? What is it potted in? Has it been reported? Whereabouts is it situated? What’s the feeding and watering regime?  That sort of information will give us some clues 😊

  • hi! so im not sure what its potted in soil wise, and I haven't repotted it recently. we've had it for about 5 months, no issues previously. its in a corner near a north facing window so we've moved it so it gets more light. over winter feed once every 8 weeks approx. and watering wise about once a fortnight roughly  :)

    My first thought is that it’s roots might be too damp ... check that water isn’t accumulating in the white pot.  
    I only water most houseplants when the compost an inch below the surface is dry. Stick your finger in up to the first joint to check. 
    Also I don’t feed houseplants in the autumn/winter ... they’re not really putting on much growth so shouldn’t need it.
