My plant looks like something is eating it and some leaves have spread. What can I do?


If possible identify what is creating the damage. Based on your description of spreading leaves I envision the ends of the leaves being split, or shredded. If that is an accurate interpretation on my part, it is most likely that the leaves are being brushed by passers-by, or an animal (cat, dog) is chewing or batting at the ends of the foliage, either of which would cause the leaves to fray.
