I havea 1m tall Erythrina Crystagalli, usually kept in a conservatory.Until recently it has looked very healthy, although not flowered, but now most of the leaves are becoming spotted - see photo. Any ideas.
It is well watered and is fed every week.
Some of the lower leaves are turningyellow, which may be seasonal - in the UK.

Hello, Gray! Sorry this took so long. It definitely looks like spider mites. I would spray it thoroughly with a light solution of organic dish soap, then wash it down with plain water at least once a week afterwards, to keep them from coming back.

Thanks, Tugbrethil - you were quite right. I looked (thro' a magnifying glass) and could see the little spiders. Problem solved, thanks again.I'm now feeding it well to help it recover.
