Re: Pholodendron rot problem

>Ask Dewey, who might actually know what he is talking about.

Gee, Rand...  Thanks a lot!

I have the "Florida Plant Disease Control Guide" and if some one can ID the
cause of the rot from the description that Chris gave, I will be happy to
look it up.

This is one problem that I have not had.  When I have something similar to
this, I cut far below the obvious rot, rub the cut area with Captan and
soak the roots in a combination of Subdue and Phyton 27 for at least 1/2
hour, sometimes overnight.  Since Aliette is other systemic, you might try
soaking the roots again the next day...  after the first solution has had
time to go into the plant.

One of the first things I would do is unpot and check the roots.  If any
are damaged, cut them.  Wash off the potting media with a strong flow from
a hose, soak and start all over again with new potting media.

The above mentioned book states:  For Stem, Crown and Root
rots..(Rhizoctonia, Fusarium, Botrytis and Sclerotinia...... Use
"thiophanate methyl"... Commercial trade names....  Cleary 3336 (50% WP,
42% F), Fungo Flo (46.2%), Fungo 85WP, Domain FL (46.2$) and SysTec 1998

I hope this helps and that my reputation is intact....
