Silver on Leaves

Post by CitizenEra5ed » Sat Aug 06, 2016 3:26 pm

Hi folks, i've recently bought a Fatali to go with my Trinidad Scorpion. The Scorpion is doing great but the Fatali looks to be struggling a bit. It has like a sliver sheen on some of the leaves. Is it anything to worry about?

Regards

Chris

The pic is a little too small to see properly. Sorry.

I'm not sure that is sunscald, looks a bit like powdery mildew, are any mites present? maybe on the underside of the leaves?

Thanks for the reply chilliman64, the leaves look to be free from mites.
