Does this fuchsia have a virus ?

Asked July 9, 2020, 10:39 PM EDT

Hi, I wonder if this fuchsia plant has a virus and whether or not it is treatable. I’m not sure if I should dispose of this plant. I purchased it from the Portland Nursery Mother’s Day 2020 . Thanks for your help!

Thank you for the image.

No, that fuchsia does not have a virus. The tan spot is damage from excessive sunlight on a recent day with higher than usual temperatures. If you don't like its appearance, remove the leaf.
