    I have a couple of Mediterranean Palms which are showing black marks on the leaves. I know this is normal for the plant . Is it possible to reduce this marking ? I remove badly marked leaves and congested leaves . Is there any cure or prevention tips to reduce this marking ? Both plants are in containers.
    TIA

    Not sure Harry.
    I have a fairly old Chamy that is quite big and it never has problems of this type.
    I have a fairly small, although more than 10yrs old Chamy cerifera that I grew from seed, and it is getting leaf problems every year.

    I can only guess this happens when they are not happy, but apart from good feeding and watering, if pot grown, I really cant think why.

    When young I think they do appreciate some shade, in really hot weather.

        Thanks for the answers , I'll get some rose blackspot spray today . I'll also try to improve my rather intermittent feeding regime . Would an application of palm feed every 2-3 weeks be about right ?
