I have a few small fig trees, and two of them have dark spots on the leaves, and some of the leaves are really yellow. Is this a problem, and if so, what, and how can I fix it?
This is a picture of a smaller fig tree.
It could be Fig Mosaic Virus.It is fairly common and I don't think there is a cure for it yet.It shows up in young and stressed plants and even though they still have it,as they grow older and established,it's less of a problem.
If yours has it,it's best not to propagate the plant. Brady
Here is an old thread about it.
Here is a link that might be useful: is mosaic virus carried in all fig trees?
Like the yellowing of your adjacent grape leaves, those plants are going to drop and go dormant. The leaves usually yellow first.... no worries on it, no need to worry about FMV. See the Figs4Fun forum for more into on it...
Yep is 100% natural this time of year. Also agree about FMV just ignore it, is a non issue.
Yes, I agree with all the others. Its the time of year, don't worry these plants are very tolerant of this virus. You will have figs...mine are looking the same. I have 5 plants. NO worries! In spring, they will leaf out beautifully.
That's a relief. I wasn't sure if it was just a seasonal thing because of the lack of uniform change on the other leaves. Thanks, everyone.
Pictures of fig leaves all off one plant that has grown massively this summer. One healthy, three showing mosaic symptoms, and two just getting old.
