Good afternoon all,

I have been growing a basil plant in my back yard for several months now. I noticed that the leaves began getting light brown spots on them that quickly darkened and started killing the plant slowly. I did some research and found out that it is most likely a type of fungus in the soil. I was wondering what I could do in order to save the plant. I would transplant it, but the plant is not that small anymore. Thank you! Thank You!

Hi Adrian

If its a soil fungus, transplanting wouldn't help anyway as you would transfer the fungus with you.

Can you post some photos of your plant so we can see what you are dealing with?

You can try some copper or sulfur, oil-based sprays for fungal problems.
