Brown/Black matter on the whole habanero plant
Habanero plant with something that looks like dirt on the leaves and fruit. Growing ok....but seems wilted in areas, almost dry and black almost a graphite looking substance all over. Can't figure out what it is. I will submit a picture tomorrow if that is ok with y'all?
