Sagging Money Tree

Any tips to save my money tree, the leaves are falling off by the handful and it is looking very sad and unhealthy at the moment. It was ok week ago.

    Too much or too little water. Both can cause this.
    How does the compost feel?
    In London. Keen but lazy.
  • It's dry at the top inch or so then damp but not wet, we don't water that often as heard this can cause issues. How do you know whats enough or not?

    Is there drainage at the bottom of the container?

  • No drainage as it sits on a table in the pot.

    Hi @Steven morgan61,

    The other issue I think you might have there is lack of light.
    The large gaps between leaves might indicate the plant is stretching and looking for more light ... so try moving it to a brighter position if you can.

    You could cut off any stringy bits and use them as cuttings.
