    HELP I have a miniature rose bush with a white fungus on the leaves and stems that I cannot get rid of. I have tried spraying it with house and garden spray, taking out of the pot and soaking it in warm soapy water and re-potting it in a new pot with fresh soil and it still comes back. It has lost all it's leaves a few times, but they always grow new ones. Now what?

    I have nice macro photo shots if it will help identify this.

    Give us the photos! It will help us immensely with the ID and help you cure your plant.

    Personally, I've always done well with a spray of baking soda and water against rose fungus, and I've only ever had to result to harsher stuff (Triforine) once. However, we'd need to see the extent of the infection in order to be of real help.
