I am afraid to say... my thumb is not very green  
*hangs her head in shame*

How did you find this comm? through a lj interests search on "plants"

Age:34

Country: USA

Sex/gender: F

Favourite flower: Tulip

Favourite fruit: Raspberries

Favourite tree: Magnolia

Favourite season: spring

Best thing about gardening?: I haven't figured that part out yet

If you had AUS$50/US$25 to spend on plants, what would you buy?: if they sold carrots that had already begun to sprout I would buy them because I have never successfully grown a carrot from seed.

What do you hope to find here?: the identity of my plant disease (photo under cut)

This is gross, I want it gone please.






Also, are my birds of paradise supposed to have this black stuff on them?



and does anyone know what kinds of shrubs these are? They are pretty and in my yard but they came with the place.

Welcome! I'm not sure what those shrubs are...perhaps try GardenWeb. You can post it there and someone will answer.

That first picture, with the white web-like stuff is a type of spider's nest. We've run into that before with our Hibiscus plants. There is no way to get rid of it, except to spray the web-like silk off with a hose. If you do that every time it builds up, eventually it'll go away. I think it took us a week or two before it was completely gone.

The picture of the first shrub looks like Heather to me. :)

Huh, I thought it was partially melted and resolidified snow.
