What's wrong with my Fatsia Japonica?
Devon, United Kingdom
This year I bought a Fatsia and put it in a pot, where it has grown beautifully. Now I've noticed that the newer leaves are full of holes - the lacey effect. On the underside, there is something that looks like rust. The emerging leaf buds are absolutely covered in it. I can't see any insects or catarpillars but that doesn't mean there aren't any, does it? I never use chemicals but I might be tempted in this case if you think I should.
