Hello.

These citrus plants have been suffering from a disease that is probably not because of a spray since there was nothing unnatural sprayed on them besides rain water and tap water. They say it's the best tap water in the world. Ever heard that?

Anyways, an image speaks better I guess...




Thank you friends! let's do this!

I am going to guess its a fungus.  Much better picture here than the other forum I saw this on.

This looks very much like the damage caused by Citrus Hindu mite Schizotetranychus hindustanicus.
See page 11 at http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/Hodges/FL_FD/Documents/Plant_feeding_mite_pests.pdf
However, I can find no reference to this pest being established in Florida.
Perhaps you should report this to your local agricultural department or USDA, or discuss it with someone at  UF/IFAS Citrus Research and Education Center??

it is so uniform, leads me to believe it is a deficiency or something systemic.

have to ask, have you tried wiping it off?

Looks like damage from citrus hindu mite. Do you have those in Florida?
If not, well, that was my only guess...

Seems very similar to my grape vine. I know it isnít tropical but it has the same problem and the vine is not growing but I have yet to find out what it is.

Sux when people post issues, and then don't follow up and respond.

Good luck
