Sooty Mold on the Bamboo plant

jjolkaszjjolkasz Posts: 4


Last June I gave to my sister, as a present, a wonderful Bamboo plant. Very healthy, green and rich in foliage.

It is been settled in a very airy patio inside a very large container of around 50 liter size.

It is in the shadow position ( sun doesn't arrive at all on that side of the house unfortunately).

It looked great and beautiful also along winter, but strangely now in spring time has one side totally covered of a sticky black mold and its leaves are also getting yellow.. so sad!

I used a solution of natural organic Neem oil to get rid of mold but it seams like doesn't work... what i can do to save her plant?

Thank you.

    Find the cause of the mould! It usually forms on the sticky excretions of aphids or scale insects. Look under the leaves and along the leaf ribs for the culprits and deal with them. The mould can be wiped off with a damp cloth.
