Betel Leaves Plant (Piper Crocatum Celebes Pepper) - Edible - 13cm pot
Plant Exudates - Harmless molds
Sooty molds are not harmful and, in fact, are a natural occurring phenomena found on certain plant varieties. Airborne molds colonize on plant sugars and create black patches often confused with leaf pathogens. Little white beads are excreted on the backsides of the leaves and stems. The white beads have a high sugar content and make room for opportunistic molds to colonize; this turns the white beads to black beads. Let us assure you, the beads that we are talking about are not symptoms of bugs or plant diseases. Believe it or not, the molds are harmless.
