This winter I have a problem with my tupidanthus. I grow it as a pot plant at home. About a month ago the edges of leaves started to become black, and some leaves began to roll up. There were no changes in watering - same moderate watering as before. I thought that the reason may be winter lack of light, so I moved the plant to a lighter place about 3 days ago. No changes so far. What would you recommend?

i am not sure why your plant is acting like that. although, plants in the schefflera family (your plant is one) can be very tempermental if they get hit by a cold draft or if they get over/under watered. also, all plants need less water during the winter. try checking the soil and letting it dry out just a little more between waterings and try putting a flourescent light near your plant during the day.
