What is afflicting my ornamental trees?
posted by dozo to home & garden (4 answers total)
Over the last week I've noticed both of my Red Kapok
tree's leaves - I have two, two years old each in the same pots they've been in since I started them from seed - turning yellow
with some spots/curling, and what looks like rot on the bottom of where the leaves attach to the stem
. I've read quite a bit and I'm assuming it's Leaf Spot Fungus
or Elsinoe but it doesn't look exactly
like any of the pictures I've found and I don't want to do the wrong thing if they're dying. I'm wondering if it's a deficiency of some sort, but I fertilize with fish emulsion every 2 months or so in the winter here in FL so I think it's getting nutrients. Help!
