Geraldton wax is particularly prone to this and your plant may appear to die quite suddenly but in truth has been struggling for at least a few months. Preventative spraying with a fungicide such as Mancozeb or Anti-Rot in susceptible plants will help to control this disease. It is more frequent in the hotter months.
