Viral or Fungal? Male
Default Viral or Fungal?

Hey guys. Kevin here. Recently, my Pescatorea dayana had one of its lowest leaves become blotched and yellow (this one has been troublesome with at least three different types of spotting on it). Does anyone know what this is? I'm thinking water splashes or virus.

Probably fungus or bacterial. I don't think it's a virus.

I agree with Tucker. 85% of plant diseases are fungal.
