Black Spots
What am I doing wrong!

This is my second attempt caring for an English ivy, black spots are appearing just like the last one that unfortunately died. How do I save it or what can I do to prevent this from happening again on my next one? They’re so beautiful and I love how viney they can grow πŸ₯Ί
@YesiHazelwood

Use fungicides.

Sprays can be effective against both bacterial and fungal leaf spot diseases. They must be applied on a regular schedule and reapplied if rainfall is prevalent. copper fungicides are generally effective in controlling both leaf spots.

I highly recommend Neem Oil. Use it every 7!day for about 3 to 4 weeks.
@KikiGoldblatt thank you so much for your response! This explains the gnat issue!

Do you recommend a Neem oil? I am overseas and rely on my husband currently for transportation but maybe I can find something similar on Amazon!
@YesiHazelwood yes you can find Neem Oil on Amazon.
I agree with @KikiGoldblatt’s advice. I will say, make sure to not expose your plants to direct light when using Neem oil! It will burn your leaves and they will NOT look pretty after! (From experience 🫠)
