spots on my jades.

Discussion in 'Cacti and Succulents' started by Unregistered, Feb 12, 2005.

  1. I've had three jade plants for about 15 years. I have never had any problems with them. Last summer/fall I noticed white fuzzy large spots on top of some of the leaves. When I wipe it off it leaves a black/brown spot. Someone said it could be powdery mildew. If it is how do I treat it and is it terminal. One of my jades is beginning to die as the branches are shriveling up, I pull it off and it is all black inside. Please help!! Jeri

    Hi Jeri,

    If it is powdery mildew, try this.

    I'm thinking you've got something else going on, either in combination or different entirely. If you have branches shriveling up, then you've got rot. Once it starts, there isn't much you can do. Take cuttings of healthy stems, let them dry in the shade for 2 or 3 days to form a callous on the cut end and insert into moist soil.
