Phytoplasma Disease Symptoms
The symptoms of Phytoplasma Disease vary by species but overall follows the same basic pattern.
1. Necrosis of the inflorescence (flowers).
2. Yellowing or browning from the oldest (lowest) leaves to the newest leaves.
3. Death of the apical meristem (bud or center frond).
Once the apical meristem dies this is the equivalent of the death of the tree. You cannot save a tree with a dead apical meristem.
