Natural or fungus? - Advice needed

Post by BryanW » Fri Apr 13, 2018 2:17 pm

I've been checking my Mesemb seedlings today and have noticed on one the Tanquana prismatica that a white patch has appeared. Unfortunately I can't see very well and I'm having difficulty telling if the white patch is natural leaf die back or if it is a fungus developing. The rest of the seedlings in the pot seem ok The seedlings are being exposed to natural light behind a shading of net curtain.

I've taken a close up with a cheapo USB microscope
