Browning of leaf on one edge, with sharp corner.

Its a newly transplanted lily, all the leaves grew are after transplant, right bottom shows some thread like algae growth on wall, at centre small elongated round leaves plant is bacopa monnieri, contains two molly fish


Thanks

Could be water droplets magnifying the sun and burning a hole in the pad. All the other pads look healthy, so I wouldn't be too concerned at the moment for pest/disease as the culprit.

A lot of my leaves get spots, damage, I never worry about them. Lily pads never stay perfect.

Ahhh yes! Those "beautiful" animals! They are definitely lovely, but not in a garden or yard - and certainly not in a pond!

We have a ton of them wandering through, need to protect all the saplings from the bucks rubbing in the fall.

Same happened to adjoining leaf that was touching the affected part. Ok, I just clipped two leaves near to petiole. I don't want it spreading to root.

It's spreading like fire, even affecting new leaves.


All leaves are affected, resorting to last option.


Today, I chopped off all except one leaf, that was aeria.


Hope it recovers!
