Answer: The black film is likely a sooty mold that grows on the honeydew produced by the aphids. If you are still getting news leaves with mold, your plant probably still has aphids. You can spray with insecticidal soap to get rid of the aphids, and this may wash off the sticky coating and the mold as well. If not, you may need to wipe each leaf with soapy water.
