      Pentas leaves turning brown...why?

      A week ago I seen that a leaf started to turn brown, now there is a dozen leaves like this. Could someone tell me what it is, what causes it and how to treat it.
      The plant is 5 yrs old and is huge, it gets a light trim and comes inside every winter. I'd hate to lose it as it's one of the hummers, bees, butterflies and my favorites.

      Thanks Deb

      Deb, Pentas are drought resistant plants. We "our area of NC " has had more rain this Spring than I can ever remember. Maybe they are staying to wet and not draining well after the rain.
