Forgive not knowing the correct name for my plant. I have had for 10years. It is normal it goes through phases, but recently it started blooming with leaves drooping, then they are not vibrant, they are soft & limp. Also I noticed the end of one branch is like dead rotted appearance. Also noticed lil nats flying around soil when I have tilled to check it's moisture. I don't want to loose it. Very sentimental to me. It's been in same spot for those years, doesn't like to be moved.

Please post the picture of your plant so that we know exactly what plant it is. Is it a Pachira plant?
I had mine for 14 years and never bloom.

There are several possibilities: fungal infection, over water, lack of sunlight.

I would buy some bright white light and shine it to the weak area at night to supplement the sunlight. It did the trick for my plant. My plant actually loves artificial light than natural light.
