Two posible answers:
1) don't worry, I have seen it happen in many other species
but always occasionally and not as a pattern
2) worry: check the base of the leaf and see if it is not
locally rotting exactly at the point where you get when you follow the petiole
from the wilting part staright down.
If 2: try to clean away the rotting tissue and when it is
not already infecting the tuber, wait until the whole leaf collapses. If it is
infecting the tuber, take it out, clean away the rotting parts and pray to the
Lord of Phalloids that he be lenient with
I have an Amorphophallus konjac on which the leaf is starting to
die back. However, unlike the symmetrical leaf death I've seen in other
Amorphs, this one is doing it starting from one side and working across,
almost like the one side got blighted or is dying back for some reason other
Is this typical behavior that I've just not seen
until now? Or should I be concerned and start looking for causes?
Below is a (very bad webcam) picture which shows what's happening. It's
a little hard to see (sorry, I didn't think to snap a good high-res digipic
this morning) but you can see on the right-most plant how the left 1/3 has
yellowed and collapsed.
Thanks in advance for any
advice you can provide.
