I have a a purple leafed shamrock plant growing in a pot. Nearly all of the leaves are dotted with what look like yellow pollen-like dust. The yellow “dust” can be wiped off of the leaves. What is this dust and will it kill my plant or spread to other plants?

    It is rust, cut all the foliage off and remove the rust to keep from spreading. Your oxalis will leaf back out. Yes it will spread to other plants suceptible to rust.
