    I will try and look at the roots tomorrow but it is very heavy and I'm a bit concerned that if I disturb it anymore that it will drop the rest of the leaves and I'll be left with bare branches!
    I thought I should test the moisture in the soil as it felt very dry when I put my finger in the soil.so I put a wooden kebab skewer into the pot (not sure what else to use) and when I took it out it was still dry. I then decided to give it some water with some plant food . The water eventually filtered through to tray. I have put some of the fallen leaves onto some compost and hopefully they will root and I will be able to share with neighbours and friends.

    Hi Forum
    An update on the drooping money plant ..
    it appears to have lifted a tad but now the leaves are dropping like flies !! The leaves have now become brown and dimply. Could it be the frost over the weekend of 25th May . I live in Somerset. Sunny today . Picture attached . Any ideas on what to do next ?

    Hi Pete
    I didn’t realise we’d had frost in the mornings. Thought we’d gone through the frosty period !!!
    Oh dear . Well a friend looked at it today and said it looked like it was frost.
    Is there anyway I can get it back to health again. He suggested giving it some water and plant food ?

    @Jane Kirk I think I would stand somewhere sheltered, not full sun and then wait for it to start to put on new growth before feeding or watering again.
