This is one i had a few years ago, then i had problems with brown marks on the leaves - i cut it right down, got rid of all the marked leaves. I have been lucky, the Rex all seem to have done well this year. Although i have noticed some marks on the leaves of two of the plants i took to the show, I will have to watch them, they could have picked something up at the show.

Glad to hear they have done well this year! Are they prone to picking up virues from others, especially at shows?

Honestly, i'm not sure - but it seems strange that two of the plants that went to the show are affected but none that stayed in the greenhouse are, yet! I am watching them all closely.
