Hello All, I am having a consistent problem with a few of my potted plants as seen in the picture. New leaves emerge with wilt spots. Any ideas why and how to remedy? Best, Stu

Lack of water and or inability to take up water due to damaged roots or lack thereof. Reflects events of 7-10 days ago, not current conditions.

I agree with Pitangadiego. I've had the same problem with one of my potted bananas (M. siamensis) and I attributed it to the soil drying out too much and possibly me not fertilizing enough. Nutrients are easily leached out of the soil of potted plants and I am guilty of not fertilizing as often as I should.
