Brown spots on Rambutan leaves?

Sparkletts05December 14, 2013

Hello, I'm wondering if anyone knows what these brown spots are on my Rambutan leaves? They first came up about a week ago as small brown dots and have now grown in size. Here's a picture of the plant in full, it's been about 2 months since it sprouted. The single leaf on the left does not have any unusual spots/markings on it.

Here's a closeup picture of one of the right-sided leaves with the brown spots indicated by red arrows.

And the other leaf:

Any help would be much appreciated!

Your Rambutan seedling looks healthy to me. Rambutan likes a humid and hot or at least warm environment. I have three of them and when they're out there in the Summer, their leaves always look healthier. Now they're all indoors and their leaves show brown spots and the tips of the leaves also turn brownish. They're now in my patio and I have a warm mister there which helps somewhat.

I wouldn't worry too much about your seedling. Just keep it on your kitchen window where it's warm and moist and it should do ok until it gets to go out in the Summer. All the best to your little one!
