Problems of Licorice Plant

This plant is sometimes used by certain butterflies (American Ladies?) as the nursery plant for their larvae stage. Keep an eye out for any caterpillars on your plant this month and next month. If they are numerous they can make the licorice plant look pretty shabby.

Powdery mildew occurs sometimes but is hard to see because the leaves are already soft and white. For more information see the file Dealing With Fungal Disease
