I noticed this morning that my Hoya carnosa 'rubra' has some bad leaves.Some leaves had black spots on the top only, the underside look's fine.I was putting some plants outside and found these other leaves.I did think to take pictures of the leaves the second time i seen them. Could it be some kind of mold or something,if so what can i use to get rid of it.

I would appreciate anybodies opinion or advice.

Jelinda, I had a carnosa with the same affliction that came originally as an Exotic Angel basket. Had it for around 3 years and could never get rid of the problem. I suspected some kind of virus. I finally threw it out along with the soil, and I have never seen the problem again.

It's all about choices.
Hmmmmm Sounds like good advice. I've not seen it...but then... You might try spraying with Serenade. Dave turned me on to it and it is great for what I've used it for...!!!!
Leap. The net will appear.
