Acer

Anonymous added on May 13, 2011 | Answered

I have an Acer of about five years old in a large pot. It seems to have a sticky substance on some of the leaves and some of the leaves are rippled. Other than that it's quite healthy. What could these problems be please?

Sticky leaves are typically caused by either scale or aphids. Look closely at the underside of the leaves for small bumps. These articles will help you:
