Q.Zebra Plant

Zone Marlow, UK | Natedwards added on April 27, 2018 | Answered

My Zebra plant appears to be dying. It’s turning yellow from the very base of its leaves so they have become loose and easy to pull off. I can see a few tiny fly-like creatures where the leaves have detached – is it infested? Can I treat it?

You will have to pull the affected plant. This is a fungal infection. After you kill off the infected plant, you will want to treat the growing media. Just replace 1/4 of your water with peroxide when you water the next time.

Make sure you let these dry out a little between waterings. This will prevent future fungal infections.
