Help with Leaf Disease on Red Leaf Rock Fig Bonsai

mogieleemorJuly 22, 2013

Hello All,
I purchased a Red Leaf Rock Fig last year and this summer, it has developed a condition on its leaves and I am hoping to treat it. It appears to be some sort of fungal disease, however I was hoping for assistance in identifying it so I can correctly treat it. If anyone can give me any information based on the attached photo and how to treat it, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time!

From my understanding, some plants acquire these when the leafs stay too moist for too long in shady conditions like over crowding in big box garden centres where they cram larges trees in small over lapping spaces.

If its not a huge issue with you, pluck the few affected leaves if there isn't many, and watch to see if its spreading. I would also wait and see if after fall when it loses its leaves if it returns next spring. Could just be a seasonal issue.
