Author Topic: What is this weird powdery stuff on my leaf (strychnos nux-vomica)?  (Read 429 times)

Does anyone know what this is? I'm thinking either underwatering or some sort of mold. The leaves didn't wilt prior to this, so I'm leaning more towards the latter. They will crumble to the touch, the areas affected are completely dry. Is there any way to salvage it? I'm so sad...

I have a fungicide with copper and penconazole, will that help?

I’m not 100% on how to save it, but I would recommend trying not to get the leaves wet when you water. Either bottom water or use one of those long skinny watering cans to pour directly to the soil.  It helps prevent mold and fungus issues on the leaves.

Sounds like powdery mildew.if you wipe it off the leaves with your fingers and smell it it will have a moldy smell.  A fungicide should def take care of it.

I've had fungus gnat larvae kill plants and they looked similar to this on their way out =/ maybe unrelated but check your soil perhaps.

I definitely think it was a soil problem. This far only one plant survived, and I must stay it's not looking good. It's just starting to get warmer so I'm hoping that as soon as I'm able to give it more light outside and better ventilation it will be reinvigorated. It looks sick, but it hasn't really gotten worse in a while, so I'm hopeful

Still have this plant going? What a rarity, I'm curious to see if keeping it was successful.
