..... some preventive measures might be applied. In some instances the removal of affected leaves, and perhaps the cutting away of infected wood or stem.
Going back to the forum post. It can clearly be seen that the whole plant is a victim. Look at the leaves. No way can these leaves be rejuvinated. One might go as far as saying, These leaves are symbols of living death. ......
There seems to be a confusion of the issue here ... we're not talking about infection ... we're talking about a nutritional imbalance.
"...These leaves are symbols of living death. ......" a ridiculous oxymoron ... they're not symbolic of anything ... they're a symptom of ill-health. Very different.
The affected leaves may not be 'cureable' but if the nutritional imbalance is corrected in time future growth can be healthy.
This is not the same as 'feeding a sick plant' which is sometimes likened to giving a sick patient a rich meal ... it's more like making sure the patient has the correct nutrition for his bodily functions to operate healthily.
