Why do I have black spots on my Camellias?


Answer by  case (1261)

Black spots on a Camellias is a sign that your plants have a fungus. You will need to go purchase a fungicide at a local nursery to get rid of it. I strongly recommend you do this sooner than later because the fungus can spread to other flowering plants like roses.

Black spots originate from bacteria or a fungus. Insects, dirty tools, or rain can spread this to other plants. A fungicide is recommended. You should remove infected leaves when plant is dry.

The black spots on your Camellias is plant disease. Plant disease comes from too much water, food, and fertilizer. You need to take care of your Camellia. Camellias are very temperamental. The black spots on the Camellia is called tea scale. To get rid of it stop watering so much. Water twice a week.

These spots are probably caused by tea scale, a parasite that sucks the sap from the plant. If there is not to much infestation try removing the leaves and burning them but also traet with an appropriate insecticide.

well because those black spots are critters on your plant there is a spray for it but sometimes depending on how bad it could be to late only if the leaves are not changing color then if it is an outside plant you might want to spray your garden area as well

Well the black spots actually indicate a disease. This disease may be caused by mites or any other plant eating bug. You need to get rid of the presence of these spots. You can only do this by destroying the bugs. Use the raid that is made for the plants.


Answer by  MelindaS (1694)

Your problem is probably with scale insects, such as the tea scale bug. These bugs are tiny and hard to pinpoint individually, but if you leave them alone, they can kill your plant. If you only have a few black spots, you can try pruning the infected leaves off your plant. If the spots are bad, you will need insecticides.

Tea scale insects are the reason for black spot on camellia. It attaches to the underside of the leaves,pierce plant tissue ansd suck sap. The insects can be controlled by removing the infested leaves or spraying refined horticultural oil in the spring season after the plants have finished blooming and the danger of cold weather has passed.
