Diseased Parsley


Perhaps I need to find another forum for this kind of question, but I belong to this one so if anyone has any ideas I would appreciate the help.  I am trying to find out what is happening to my Italian Parsley.  It is inside under a powerful grow lamp along with all my other prospering herbs and some tropical plants.  Being inside has its own host of problems.  As you would see in the photos, I had a minor whitefly problem and you can see the dead flies on some of the leaves.  I suppose it is possible this is my problem, but I really don't think so.  There was never any telltale infestation on the leaves compared to obvious issues with other specific plants.  I was thinking Celery Mosaic Virus or Anthracnose as my best choices but I still don't think it looks like this.  I want to remove the parsley and just replace it, but I need to know what this is before I plant another one.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Could be the insect problem. My pepper transplants were hit with mealy bug while getting them started indoors last year. The leaves had very similar issues.

Thanks.  I will look for signs.  Never had that problem.  Plant is coming out today though.  It has held on for months but just won't clear up.  I am going to put in another one and see if the same thing happens.  I use a Isopropyl alcohol mixed with dish washing soap for most of my bug problems and it seems to work.  But maybe not on mealy bugs.
