    Question What is this? Fungus or Mold?

    Hello!

    I just got two new plants today and one came with this:



    It was only on this dead leaf and I looked through both plants and did not see anything else. So my question is what is it? And do I have to worry...

    just my humble opinion,

    but if its only on the dead leaf I wouldnt do a thing other than monitor the new plants for a while....

    Here are two more pictures of it.




    And a poor picture of it when I first stopped the leaf..before I cut it off.

    It is mold, which shouldn't be a threat to the plant as long as you cut that leaf off at the base. Dead foliage will go moldy quite readily during shipping, not to worry. Remove it.

    I think mold is a type of fungus......and im sorry if that was unhelpful in this instance!

    That mold looks almost like the mold you find on bread,green. Its usually the brown/grey stuff is the bad stuff. Its called Botrytis Cinerea, but also goes by grey mold or bud rot.
