Hoya macgillivrayi leaf problem.

I have this H.macgillivrayi leaf that has developed a white patch. The other leaves are O.K. and this leaf is still green on the back. I'm not sure if it's fungal or something is attacking it. I've asked the knowledgeable folk on Hoyas'r'us for a possible diagnosis. Click on picture for larger view. Thanks Roy.

roy, I am not an expert, but I have hoyas that look similar after being burned by the sun. Could the leaf have gotten wet and then been in direct sunlight?

Jennifer this particular area is under shade cloth and a big overhanging eave so it doesn't get that wet either. Thanks for your comment

Jennifer said...

ohhh...well then, that eliminates sunburn then, doesn't it?

Hope it is nothing serious!

Hi Roy,

I'm not hoya-expert, but I think, that problem could be in watering. When I had forgot about watering, one of my hoya had white places on leaf. But I'm not sure, that only this was a reason.

Sorry about my english...

In few days my hoya bella variegata will bloom. I'll invite You on my blog to see flowers.
