    Looks like there could be a couple of issues going on here. I recommend isolation of these plants and treatment. Be sure to clean all sides of the leaves and treat them and the potting mix. Good luck to you, Clara!

    cheers,

    Thanks for the replies. I'm afraid I saw this too late to join the greenhouse chat. I'll Keep a lookout for the next one. I will look for the that webinar on the AOS site. thanks for the tip. Clara
