Prevention of Succulent with White Spots


As we all know, early prevention will not have intractable consequences. Of course, the premise is that you have to learn to understand the root of these problems on your own. Spotting on succulents is not a serious matter, but it must be detected and treated early so that many things can be avoided. Here are some prevention of succulents with white spots!



What causes tiny white spots on succulents?

White spots on succulents can be caused by:

Powdery mildew
The disease usually grows along with the leaves of the plant, and after a long period of untreated, it will spread to other places, such as flowers, stems, shoots or roots, etc.

Germ
Bacterial white spots on succulents look like they've been sprinkled with a lot of salt, and you won't find the problem without careful study. These vitiligo spots are hard to touch and develop in the following colors: white, yellow-brown, and gray. They have a serious effect on the succulent quality of succulents, and if left untreated, the plants will die.

Pest
Pests such as whiteflies, mealybugs, or aphids can also cause white spots on succulents. They generally forage around the leaves and flowers of plants and can promote the growth of fungi that cause black mold, preventing photosynthesis.

Fungus
Vitiligo caused by fungi is white with a fuzzy texture. Fungi such as botrytis, leaf rot, rust, and blight can all cause white spots on succulents, especially when there is increased rain or humidity around the garden. If not detected and treated in time, the plant will wilt and die.

Salt damage
If you've ever watered your succulents frequently, the white spots that form are called "salt damage." This is a white buildup of soil salinity caused by over-fertilization or high mineral content in tap water.

If left untreated, white spots can turn brown and kill parts of the plant's leaves.
