If your plant in container please use Iron sulphate (Ferrous sulphate) 1 teaspon in 1 liter water on weekly basis until your plant recover. It is easily available at any chemical shop. any senior member correct me if i am wrong.

Better if you you had mentioned the plant type but as an alternative use Bacefol Tablets made by Abbot Laboratories, its for humans but works perfectly for container plants use two tablets grind them and dissolve in 400ml of water and irrigate plant with (freshly made solution) this, water will leach down but it should not ran out of pot if the case is same, and use second dose after one week or even you can use the whole tablets one inch deep in the soil and 2-3 inches away from the plant trunk

Have managed to purchase and used it and found a downside. The water drains out and is leaving red stains on the mosaic floor. Does not go away on washing with plain water. Any remedy for removing this stain.
