I started this oregano from seeds in August. It was flourishing and doing very well until the past two weeks. I noticed some grayish leaves near the base of the stems but thought nothing of it, and now they are all over. It seems to start with the edges of the tip of the leaves turning brownish, shortly the leaves are completely overtaken and are so brittle and dry they just fall off to the touch. the main stem does not appear to be wilting or damaged in any other way besides a lack of leaves where the dead ones have fallen off. I have searched the plant for bugs and have found none. There is still new growth coming up on the stems. Can anyone help me identify what the problem is, and what to do to save the plant?
