The enc photos show a Jade Tiara Cleyera. This was planted 1 yr ago and was fine until 1month ago. Then the Cleyera rapidly changed leaf color with the leaves becoming brittle. Slightly bending the leaf will break the leaf. I removed the plant and planted another Cleyera in the same spot about 3 wks ago. Again the exact same thing has happened. Leaves change color become brittle and then fall off the plant. Do I have fungus/bacteria soil problem? Steps to solve the soil problem? Thx…

    I don’t know what the problem is, but I’ve had it happen to two six year old plants in the same grouping. I am awaiting guidance.
