Just cut off these older leaves from a plant I received abt. 5 months ago. I think it is a Chamaedorea elegans or Parlour Palm but not sure. It came planted together with an anthurium plant and another tropical plant. Don't want any of the others to get infected, so I just cut off these leaves, but still would like to know what these black / brown parts are and how I can fix any future problems of this kind ? I hope it is not black fungus... I have been fighting white flies on several of my hibiscus plants in an adjacent room but have not seen any on this plant. I have read that their sticky secretion can promote fungus....Appreciate any help!
