Would you remove these spotted leaves ?

Post  Tbites on 6/8/2011, 2:09 pm

Hello again,

All 3 of my pepper plants have this now. I think it might be bacterial leaf spot... (I noticed its spreading to a number of leaves) but I don't want the worry wart in me to take over and the plants have been stressed quite a bit recently.

Would you remove these leaves ? Even if there's a tiny blossom wanting to emerge from its armpit ? [img][/img]

Thanks folks, I realize I have an abundance of questions lately

Yes I would, and in fact do remove any discolored leaves. My neighbor has even threatened to hide my snippers. I use baby whipes to clean the snippers between plants so I don't spread anything to other plants in the garden.. I also remove any leaves that touch the ground no matter how they look.

Thanks for the reply,

Just a clarification, the peppers (and eggplant right next to them) have what looks like baby leaves at the very bottom of the stem... right above the soil.... I'm supposed to remove those too ? Even if those aren't spotted ?

Don't know that it matters but I'll be spraying with copper fungicide tonight as well.

I left mine on the eggplant they have not grown just tiny but I am sure some people would take them off.
