Plant Infestation

Zone Waroona, Western Australia | dwtyler53 added on June 2, 2018 | Answered

Hi, I have a Kangaroo Paw (Anigozanthos "Bush Dance") but there is a obvious infestation all over the leaves. I was wondering if you could identify what it is from the photos supplied. I have tried spraying with "Yates Fungus Gun" spray for Black spot, Powdery mildew & Rust. this hasn't worked. Any help would be appreciated. Regards Dennis

This infection is, likely, in the soil. The best way to fix this would be an application of dolomitic lime and wettable sulfur. This will kill the infection, as well as recondition the soil back to a more fertile condition for plants, rather than fungal/bacterial microbes.
