Hi,
I planted a Fatsja last year and within weeks some of the leaves started to look brown on the edges, then curled in. later on all the new leaves did the same. I cut the effected leaves but the new ones doing the same this year. Is this a desease?

Fatsia is a shade lover and because of its large leaves loses a lot of moisture in the sun, sounds like the problem could be too much sun, it does best in a north or north east exposure if you don't get the wind.

Yes I know, it does get no direct sunlight and is situated in a damp bed where Ligularias are doing very well.

I don't know how damp that is, because ligularias are water hogs, Fatsia can take dry shade it is woodland plant, but it getting brown leaves is strange.

It is strange, it has been going on straight after I planted the pant. That's why I think I might have bought a deseased plant. Could it be leaf spot.

I have three of them and had them for years and none have had any disease, except the leaf burn if suddenly a tree had to be brought down.
