    I have something similar on a plant I recently received. My diagnosis was red spot fungus. I don't think it's deadly to the plant. I ordered some clearlys 3336 from PFT, but haven't tried it yet.

    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    Yep, you have the plague! It will spread to all of your plants eventually if left untreated, and in some cases, it can kill them. The Cleary's from PFT should work very well. the spots you have will not go away, but it should keep it from spreading any further. I suggest you use it on all of your plants wether they have spots or not, they may still have the fungus. You should notice a huge improvement in a few months.
    Hope that helps

    I emailed Tony about the possibility of red spot fungus spreading throughout my collection and he said it spreads mainly by water splashing from the leaves of one plant to another, and not neccessarily through the air.

    I believe that the chance of infection can be reduced by not having water remain on the leaves for periods of time.
