    Default Adiatum capillus veneris

    I have this plant for about half a year. Now, new shots are drying before they open, and, if they open they have brown spots on the leaves. I can't be from low humidity, I think that this is fungus! What do you think?

    This plant has been growing excellent but suddenly, few weeks ago this started to happen. It is in a greenhouse so I dont think that this is caused because of low humidity.

    Is it too much sun? I have one on my kitchen windowsill where it is in constant danger of getting fried. BUt they are apparently incredibly tough and practically impossible to kill, and I am convinced of this having had mine completely die back only to send out lots of new shoots just when I was convinced that it would have to go to the compost bin. I had also read that they are not that happy in overly bright light. Don't know if this really helps...

    I think the temperature could be too high in a greenhouse, best in a shady bathroom. Judi

    I might be showing my ignorance here (won't be the first time) but is that a gingko tree? I'm not familiar with the name you posted....
