Leaf Spot: Early Stages Treatment

Entry: 1 of 2

Leaf spot is an incredibly common occurrence in anyone’s home or garden, and it’s difficult to keep your plants from ever getting it - don’t feel bad if you think your plants may have contracted leaf spot! It’s very easy to treat, and it most likely wasn’t because you did anything wrong. Fungal spores are floating all over the place all the time and one of them is bound to end up on a plant eventually.

It’s best to know for sure if your plants have leaf spot or not before you begin treatment, so here are the tell-tale signs!

Early on, you’ll notice (as the name implies) small random brown papery spots or brown spots with yellow halos. It’s best to catch these while they’re small, which is one reason plant parents would do well to inspect the leaves of their plants frequently.

While the spots are still small, isolate your plant from the rest of your plants and treat the spots with our roll-on copper treatment to keep them from spreading and killing the spores!

Also, discontinue misting while the plant is afflicted with the fungus. You don’t want to help the fungus grow!
