Is this some kind of virus/fungus?
I've been out of town all week and I came home to find something going on with my plants :(

The photo below is one of my water lilies and as you can see there is some kind of spots on it. I noticed that some of my apongeton leaves have holes in them. one of my Hygro Corymbosa has dropped a lot of leaves and they had weird holes or abrasions.

Any ideas? I really hope it doesn't wipe out my plants!

Bump... Anyone?

I can't tell for sure but it looks a lot like it's getting attacked by a pest that is common to garden plants. If you look closely at the damage you should be able to see a tiny caterpillar looking thing. You can follow the link for more info though

Hmmm could be but it doesn't explain the submerged plants. I will continue to watch but my temple plant is losing lots of leaves daily :-(

It looks viral although I don't know for sure...
