    Is this Orange Rot? (lophs)

    14 days between the anti rot and the liquid copper. repeat

    caapi care

    They drop leaf during the really cold months. you can give it a light prune now while it's dormant which will cause no harm. You can prune later in spring if needed.

    long established graft having issues

    Not 100% sure but it looks like erwinia soft rot. peeps call it the orange rot that kills lophs. Whatever the pathogen name this is very contagious.

    What is this and how do I treat it?

    killing the scale will not stop the fungal infection. You need to control both. @Glaukus mentioned a few methods in the above comment. You could also buy yates brand lime sulphur from bunnings. this stuff will kill your scale and will slow down or even kill the fungal infection. repeat in 14 days. this product can only be used in winter.

    What is this and how do I treat it?

    scale yes , fungal yes. not phytophthora though. IMO the scale has caused a fungal attack by damaging the skin.

    Poppin poppies

    most of this is very good info, I would wait a month in northern nsw to sow, the temps are to high. just sprinkle the seed on the surface, keep moist until they sprout and then back the water off. they grow really well amongst the cactus. they do like a fed during the young stage but they happy to grow without it. po ash is perfect once they flower. I think planthelpers climate would be very tricky to grow this species.

    Raised bumps / scarring

    Yes it is very common in Bridgesii species when it's very hot and humid. I can't see any tiny black dots amongst the infected area, which would indicate a fungal issue. so I would say its a nutrient deficiency. Like glaukus mentioned , It a good idea to lay down some dolomite lime. backed up with a good drink of liquid po ash. potassium helps strengthen plants, it thickens their cell walls and defends the plant against disease. Just to be on the safe side I would also give them a spray of a good fungicide because the plant is under stress which can lead to fungal attacks.
