: This has been a typically hardy plant for me...but I've had to trim off 2-3 leaf stalks because they had shiny green blemishes on them. Is it some kind of fungus (I can't scrape it - it seems to be inside the leaf, like the purple is turning green)? What do I do??

Hi Karen,

I grow this plant too and thankfully haven't had this problem. Try taking a look around here in the houseplants section. I'm suspecting it's some type of scale insect.

If you find you need some type of treatment, try this site for earth and people friendly solutions.

Good luck,
