Step 2
Remove any affected leaves to prevent rot

Step 3
Do not water or fertilize

Step 4
Put the plant in a plastic bag and seal it up. This will provide a greenhouse effect.

If the plant is going to recover, you will see results in a few days

Step 6
In about a week, remove the bag and go back to your regular watering and fertilizing schedule. B
