I think the damage may be caused by the actual sucking parts of the scale insects. They adhere tight to the plant and literally suck the sap out of it so the discolouration could well be where they were attached, like a little scar. It sounds like you’ve done all the right things to help your lime plant fight off the scale invasion but their life cycle is ...

My parsley goes like this after it has had an attack of greenfly, probably because they suck the sap out of the plant. I usually treat it with a biological spray, cut off the affected leaves and stems and discard them, and the plant recovers with rest. (Don’t use it for eating during this period). Sometimes the greenfly are so small they don’t notice until ...

Don't cut lower than one inch, ever. Grass seed needs cultivated soil in order to grow, you can't just chuck the seed on the hard bare patches and expect it to take. In April, cut the grass then use a fork to lightly cultivate the worst of the bare patches. Use a hard-wearing grass seed mixture suitable for a family lawn. Scatter the seed, lightly rake in ...

Repotting your precious aloe plant carefully might help. If the roots are too big, there maybe not enough nutrients in the pot. If there is no sunlight, try moving the plant to a sunny spot. A plant needs photosynthesis to survive well. Is there any pests around? Is there any bugs roaming around in the soil? If so, use plant friendly pesticides. Are you ...

I would put my bet on over watering. ZZ plants are a very low light tolerant plant getting them grow lights is not necessary for the winter or in general. The fact that you have doubled up the watering since the grow-lights have been installed, it is the possible root cause. With ZZ plants it is enough to water when the soil gets completely dry. During ...

The brown/tan spots on the bark are not a disease symptom. The spots are called "lenticels." They are a natural part of the bark of young branches and shoots of Royal Poinciana. As branches age, the main color of the bark will change from green to gray, at which point the lenticels become much less noticeable because they match the background color ...

This palm has a well established colony of mealy bug. Using a magnifying glass will show them better as they hide in a white powdery layer of wax. You can try controlling them with a mix of 5 ml of dish soap to one liter of water. Dip a cloth in the solution and wipe all surfaces of the plant. Do this three times every five to seven days to catch the eggs ...

The keys are The upright "trunk" and branching The flattened rosette of leaves at the end of each "stem" The way in which the leaves whorl about the center in each rosette The leaf shape If this is an aeonium, then care is relatively easy, beginning with "DO ...

It is possibly not because of the tap water. That would cause mineral build-up in the tips and edges of the leaves which would lead to crispiness in those areas not yellowing in general. Low humidity would cause similar symptoms as tap water, crispiness instead of overall yellowing. Based on that you have upped the watering I would suspect root rot. You ...

Per the Farmer's Almanac Jade Plant Guide, it seems like your plant isn't getting frequent or deep enough watering: If the plant starts to drop its leaves, if leaves start to shrivel, or if brown spots appear on the leaves, it is an indication that the plant needs more water. So give it a nice, deep watering, but the water shouldn't spill out of the tray ...

I wouldn't worry about that , see the new leave it is glossy and shinny , mostly this is due to weather change. I have same plant variegated and not variegated and both have 2 or 3 leaves with slight damage but new leaves are in good shape
