Anthracnose Disease

Anthracnose Disease is characterised by sunken black spots on the foliage. Dark brown streaks may occur at the leaf tips.

Anthracnose disease is associated with warm and very moist conditions especially where air circulation is limited.

Always ensure there is good air circulation for your houseplants.

Many houseplants can be attacked by Anthracnose diseases but Palms and Ficus are highly susceptible to this disease.

The Best Treatment for Anthracnose Disease in Houseplants

  • Remove and burn the affected parts of the plant and discard or burn them.

  • Spray the houseplant with a systemic fungicide. Ensure all the foliage of your plant is well covered with the fungicidal solution.

  • Keep the soil of your plant on the dry side and do not mist for several weeks.
