    Default Fungus in Catt?

    Are the black spots fungus? How do I treat it? Should I cut off the leaves? Is it systemic? Some of the new growths have it too!

    I would agree that it is probably sunburn, Nancy. It should not continue to grow unless there is still a sunlight issue.

    Oh that's a relief! That's not as dreadful as fungus.. Will move it out of direct sun immediately!! Thanks for the analysis. :-)
