I’m not liking the look of this brown spot of Foxxys leaf. She has three. Any ideas what they are? #GregGang

Fungal infection?

just a guess…

I’ve never experienced this, so i’m curious to what they are too
@Marthamaywho92 it looks like a fungal infection to me. I had that on one I used to own. I used Neem Oil every 7 days top and bottom of the leaf needs to be sprayed.

If it looks trimmed in yellow to you then it’s leaf spot disease.

If your plant’s leaves have small brown spots trimmed in yellow, this could be a sign that it has leaf spot disease, which is a fungus or bacteria that feeds on the leaves. If this is the case, don’t start planning a plant funeral just yet. This problem is treatable. It is best to immediately remove the affected leaves and isolate the plant from your other greenery for a bit. 
“To treat leaf spot disease, put a tablespoon or two of baking soda and a teaspoon or two of mineral oil in a spray bottle of water. Shake the solution well and then spray all areas of the plant that are infected with brown spots. It may take a couple of applications before the bacteria is totally gone.
Could also be early signs of overwatering. I’d keep track unless the spots get worse. @Marthamaywho92
@kscape I have a leaf or two that has done the same thing but it’s not overwatered. I only water it when it’s completely dry. Mine is outside for the time being. No sun gets to it at all.
