Q.Fig Tree Suffering in Greenhouse

Anonymous added on February 21, 2011 | Answered

I am caring for two fig trees in our greenhouse. Both were infected with spider mites last summer, but only one has recovered. The other now has spotted leaves that go yellow and then golden brown, no matter what I do. Any help or direction would be much appreciated.

There are 2 possibilities. One is that it is a fungus. Treat the plant with a fungicide. The other is that it is Fig Mosaic. There is no cure for this and the plant should be destroyed before it spreads to the other fig.
