Re: jade plant- advice needed


The orchid growers that I know swear by cinnamon.

Captan isn't that great except for a few specific fungi, but it's still available. Immunox is one fungicide that seems to have a wide spectrum but whether it would work on the fungus in question is debatable.

Daryl would likely know that. Only one that comes to mind is captan--and I don't know it that's still available/legal. As I remember it was withdrawn for use on food crops some time ago.

Hmm- didn't think of using a fungicide, since I don't have any on hand. Is there a common one you'd recommend? I plan on running over to HD this am anyway.

No expert here, but I'd try cutting the mushy stems back to firm and dusting the cuts with a fungicide. Might stop it; might not. But can't hurt.

HI all (especially Jim)-

I'm still trying to nurse my jade plant back to health after the winter's freeze. I've cut it back several times to remove mushy stems,and parts seem to be fine now, both other parts seem to be still mushy and rotting back even further along the stems. Any advice on what to do to stop this process before it gets all the way to the main trunk and kills it?

Theresa
