    What can you do for an African Violet that seems to be getting a mold or fungus?

    My mother has absolutely beautiful African Violets growing year round.  Only recently, one of her biggest ones got some kind of mold or fungus.  That is my guess anyway.  It is like a white powder, causing some droopiness, etc.  Do you have any suggestions?

    The fungus that looks like white powder on the leaves can be treated by spraying with  Neem oil. You can either use the 100% or even the Neem II.  Thereafter, clean up and throw away all the dead plants and make sure not to water directly on the plants.  The place where the plants are should be well ventilated.  They should be just fine.
