Brown spots on young mango leaves

Mango    None Given

Hi, a few months ago I planted a mango seed in a pot to keep inside my home. It is growing slowly and is now around 10cms high. I just noticed the leaves have some brown spots and wanted to know what I should do? Thanks

Are these spots on the top or bottom side of the leaves? Or both?

Please send a picture of the bottom of the leaf. Do you see small black specks that may indicate infection? Sap sucking insects may also be the cause, look carefully underneath the leaves and at the soil surface. Make sure you water once the soil is dry, then saturate it until the water runs out. This site has a plethora of information on Mango's and their native habitats. Try to mimic it's native growing conditions in your home. https://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/m...

I am not sure what you mean with black specks? I just can notice that now most of the leaf has these tiny brownish spots and under the leaf I can also see some fungal growth. I will try to upload another photo soon.
