I have added bougain to the top of the soil and have been trying to water it only when the pot feels light or the leaves start to...

    What is this on my tree's deadwood?

    Created deadwood earlier this year and was told to let it dry and wear away in the elements so we didn't protect it. However I have noticed it's covered in this mold kind of looking stuff. It's only on the deadwood and not on the leaves/trunk, is this normal or is it an issue I need to worry...

    Recently purchased a gnarly looking tea tree from a plant store. Tree itself is in good shape but it was very dirty and neglected. Leaves were caked with what looked like road grime or very caked dust. As I was Cleaning the leaves I began to notice a lot of the crevices have little patches of...

    Can a nutrient deficient appear spontaneously (Chinese Elm)

    Hi About a week or two ago I posted a thread regarding what I thought at the time was a form of fungal infection or pest on my Chinese elm, and a few kind people replied, with the majority of them deeming it to be a nutrient deficiency (mainly N). Initially this seemed like a reasonable...

    Fungus or something else?

    Hello, just today when I went to look on my Chinese elm I noticed that the surface of the new leaves had become spotty. The tree has just started shooting quite aggressively about 1/2 weeks ago, as I had failed to care for it properly throughout the winter. Could anyone tell me what is going on...

    Advice needed on next steps of this crabapple and how to nurse it back to health

    Hi all. Back in April, I bought a Nagasaki Crabapple from someone from my local club. It was very healthy then, with flowers just finishing up. However, in early-mid June, I noticed that the leaves were browning and curling up. I was quite confused as I'd never encountered this before, but then...

    Black shoot tips on black bag pomegranate hardwood cutting. Fungus?

    I have this Pomegranate hardwood cutting that has been in a black bag for almost 2 months now. The tree is producing a lot of shoots, however most of them are turning their tips black after they start to elongate. At first I thought that it was because they were getting burned after having...

    Field Maple diagnoses

    I received these from Evergreen Garden works, the first, smaller one in late July, the second larger one in late August. Both trees looked very happy and healthy upon arrival, but after getting the first one, within a week I saw the first signs of these dead leaf spots. A month later I got the...

    White Uniform Dotting on Ficus Leaves

    Hadn't noticed this before, but it's only on one ficus. One of those hardware store ginseng ficus graft trees that I got when I was first starting the hobby. Anyway, the other day I noticed these white uniform dots all along the leaves. Any idea what this might be?

    Bird Poop Leaf Damage?

    I’ve never seen bird poop damage a leaf (I’m 95% sure this is bird poop). So either this one was one helluva shot and hit this existing dead spot, or the bird poop damaged the leaf. Is the damage from a pathogen or possibly fertilizer burn from the poop (which I’ve never seen before)? The mold...

    I’m still struggling to figure out what’s wrong with my American Hornbeam. A ton of leaves have these black spots showing up on them.

    White Mould good or bad?

    Hi all, new here. I got my first bonsai. It was stored in an outdoor greenhouse but is an indoor plant. I took it home, put it in place (window with natural light) but the following day i noticed this on the soil. Is this an issue for the plant? Or just symbiotic with the soil and tree?

    ID on What Might Be Going on with Crepe Myrtle

    I've had this guy for probably a little over a month now. Repotted him as soon as I got him into a 1:1:1 mix of pine bark, akadama, and pumice. He's showing signs of some sort of bacterial or fungal issue I'm guessing. I REALLY hope this isn't bacterial leaf scorch, but from what I've been...

    Potential rust on willow

    Hi everyone! Technically my first post but long time lurker. My largest willow cutting that I got on a lark appears to have gotten a potential fungal infection from our latest downpour (or I assume that’s what the orange dots are). I know that the top evidently has dieback and I need to chop...

    How do you prevent fungal infection when root pruning Deshojo&Co?

    I still haven't found a definitive answer to how to prevent fungus from entering a delicate JM cultivar, like the Deshojo, when root pruning. This is an air layer from South Korea/Japan. I had to do a major cut at the base to have a flatter root plain and this is the result. It pushed growth...

    Aesthetic Problem Or Disease Problem?

    I bought this texas scarlet chaenomeles japonica at a big box store last month, since it looked healthy, large, and relatively low priced. It was only after I took it home and started chopping away all the twiggy growth that I noticed my intended trunk has some reverse taper in spots. If it just...
