I just bought this Hoya, which is slightly yellow and has some spots under some leaves. The plant is quite big, and I currently have it away from my other plants. Can anyone tell me if the spots are normal or some disease?

It's all about choices.
I'm not able to tell you....I've got some leaves to take into the Ag. department myself. They don't look bad to me...they don't go all the way thru the leaf...more like it was growing in high light and reacted....
Leap. The net will appear.

I've got some of what looks like that on my H.mindensoris, doesn't go all the way thru the leaf. Does not seem to effect the plant at all, just looks terrible. I was thinking perhaps moisture/water on the leaves with the Sun hitting it and causing a sort of "scald"has not spread to other leaves...Carol will be interested to see what you come up with.

I have some of those, I agree with MJ, water and sun, doesn't spread , just makes the plant not so pretty. I think it is the price we pay for. Growing outside.

Just my .02 worth

The place where I bought this plant had a really high humidity greenhouse, so there was a lot of light, and a lot of heat. I guess that is the reason!

Still, I'm going to apply Cleary 3336 foliar and drench just in case, which is the fungicide I have been using... Thanks!
