Caption: Leaf spot fungus. Close-up of a leaf spot fungus (Phytophthora parasitica) infecting a begonia leaf. This fungus is also called aerial blight because it usually attacks the visible or aerial part of a plant rather than the roots. The initial symptoms, seen here, are the white lesions on the leaves. The fungus will then cause collapse of the leaf stem. From here it may grow to the base of the plant and cause death. Control of this disease is difficult. Fungicides do not always work and often the infected plant has to be removed to prevent infection of other plants.
