With the season changing, it’s no surprise that everyone is getting sick. Everywhere you go, you hear sniffles and coughs, and all you can hope for is that with a lot of hand sanitizer and a safe amount of distance, you’ll avoid the bug. However, your plants don’t always get so lucky with these common plant diseases.
Causes Of Plant Diseases
Just like in humans, microscopic bacteria are to blame for the spread of disease. Bacteria and fungi grab hold of the plant and infect them systemically, drastically impacting the health of your plant and the appearance of your garden. Another massive catalyst of plant disease? Bugs.
Insects like hoppers, thrips, and beetles are the major vectors of plant diseases spreading.
