I have a decent sized A. paeonifolius that I've grown all summer outdoors on my pool deck.
It had a single leaf about 2.5 to 3 feet tall which was starting to form another leaf off the tuber.
A skunk/raccoon? uprooted the bulb and damaged a leaf stalk where it attaches to the bulb.
I noticed some brown mush on the stalk near some white powdery fungus a few days later.
When I pulled on the leaf, it detached from the bulb and I noticed some small white worms
Anyway, I cleaned of the rotted tissue as best I could and doused it with liquid sulfur 6.4% sulfur from Safer.
The new leaf is happily getting bigger and so far no further sign of rot and haven't seen any more worms.
Should I cut off the new leaf too and soak the bulb in some nasty pesticide/fungicide?
Any advice is appreciated.
