I have four nice African Violet plants sitting together on a table. I
noticed one of them has something on the ends of many of the top of the
leaves that looks like light brown "dried mud". It doesn't wash off with
water and the plant appears very healthy otherwise. It hasn't spread to any
of the other plants either.
Anyone have any idea what it is and how to get rid of it?
Check out this page from one of the largest violet growers in the country:
If you love these plants, do NOT visit this place unless you're capable of
controlling your spending. Or, walk in with a fixed amount of cash and no
credit card. Don't ask me how I know this. :-)
Do African Violets get scale? If it's scale the things would be easily
scraped off with a finger nail or knife point. If it's scale, move the
affected one away from the others and keep a close watch on the other
ones for a while.
I've never seen scale on an AV but I'm trying to make sense of your
description. Any of these on the underside of any leaves?
