while potting jade plants i noticed the leaves looked like a light mist of black spray paint had settled on the leaves.It is on almost all my jades & elephant bush plants.I can't get a good enough close-up picture of it (my camera isn't good enough).The description is actually what i thought it was, because i had been painting with black spray paint,until i seen it was on over 7 plants and only the jades & elephant bushes no other plants that were on a table with around 20 plants all succulents.

I had potted about 5 plants & 2 were jades and noticed it on the 3rd.forgetting about the other plants i treated all but the 2 that were on another table.I done this a week ago and 2 nights ago we had a hard storm,i picked up 30 leaves from full grown to new growth on the table & in the pot.

My jade plants & elephant bushes have yellow leaves and are dropping massive amounts.While i was treating I noticed in a large round shallow pot of succulents the sedum reflexum 'blue spruce' had mealie bugs so i treated it also.That plant has lost some needles and some succulents have lost bottom leaves.

I used the same product i always use but i've never used any on succulents.

A green thumb comes only as a result of the mistakes you make while learning to see things from the plants point of view!!
