My greatest frustration was to see this beautiful plant get burnt tips. I have never had to care much for it as the naturally humid conditions here suited it well. But somehow the leaves started to dry up and all the new growth ended up with spots. I have cleansed it of pest or disease or whatever it is that ravaged it (soapy water). But the growth has stopped for now but at-least it isn’t getting worse. I wish I knew exactly what caused it to deteriorate like this! :(

@gjones it helps that the leaves close up when it is feeling dry/thirsty, it makes it easier to care for!
