Streptocarpus problem.

SusanJNYJuly 19, 2012

I purchased this plant from Logee's several months ago. It had some of these yellow spots that have now worsened. I have tried extra fertilizer, and varying the light/moisture level, but they keep getting worse. And I am also starting to see them on the Streps I've had for years. Any ideas?

Hi Susan,

Sorry I don't know these plants except to say they are in the Gesneriad Family & that GW does have Gesneriad Forum (see top of from page here). Am guessing if you post there, you'll get some reasonable suggestions.

Until then, if you think this plant is the source, pls. consider moving it well away from the rest of your collection so it doesn't spread further.

Pretty Plant & Good luck!

Hmmm, never seen this before on my few Streps. What fertilizer are you using? How much light do they get.
