Now it has horrible mildew! Will the mildew spread to all the other plants it touches? What should I do?

YUP! Off with its head....

Seriously it WILL spread if you let it...
Remove all the infected leaves and toss (DO NOT COMPOST THEM) Spray it with this mixture (easily made at home)


1 quart of water
1/4 tablespoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of vegetable oil
1 teaspoon of dishwashing liquid

Mix the ingredients together and put into a spray bottle.
Spray plants once a week on a cloudy day to prevent foliage burn.
