    Hi. I’m new to the forum and in need of advice. I’ve noticed that a couple of my plants have developed black spots on or near the tips of the leaves. (Photos below) Is this something I need to treat?

    Welcome to the forum, Lee.

    It is difficult to accurately diagnose issues based simply upon a photo, but I suspect the potting medium is old, has accumulated a fair amount of mineral residues and waste, so is becoming toxic. Repotting is probably a good start, unless the images are misleading.

    Tylenol until just now and that was I couldn’t of taken some by at like 130 so that’s good yeah I’m trying to stretch itC
    i’ll start with repotting in fresh medium and see if that helps. Thank you for the suggestion.
