Hey. I posted about brown spots on my flapjack.
I've attached some photos this time. I havent had him very long. He didnt have any spots when I bought him. I haven even watered him since I got him yet.

Needs a bigger pot
by: Jacki Cammidge, Certified Horticulturist

These plants are very thick leaved. The fact that it's in a tiny pot will give it major issues. I know this because of the color of it - it needs more soil. The older leaves die first - that's just the way it is, so under stress, these will be the ones jettisoned.

What the producer pots them into isn't meant to be their home forever.

The leaves showing the damage will probably never recover, but new leaves won't get the same problem.

Repot it right now - in Australia, you still have lots of summer left.
