Hi all, I'm a newbie plumie gardener but have an extensive container collection of citruses, figs, jades, orchids, etc. I just got my first plumie, a Dwarf Singapore Pink from Florida Colors. It had 3 small leaves on it when it arrived. I potted it in a riff on Al's Gritty Mix (I couldn't find turface) and it sat in a sunny window. It was starting to grow new leaves but the brown spots on one of the existing leaves started to look not so good. I've had issues with scale and mites on my jades and citruses so was dosing it with Neem right from the get-go. Then this last Sunday I looked at the brown spots and they were bright orange fungusy looking things. I immediately shot it with the Neem and wiped it down. The problem leaf looked so bad I cut it on Monday and then the other leaves all died. During this I also had it out on my balcony when it was in the middle 80's (in March!) but I erred in leaving it there over night b/c the temps went to 50. So I may have shocked the little leaves.
Any ideas on what the orange stuff was? Will it bug my other plants and will Neem work on it? And did I shock it?
Thanks so much!!!
