Recommended Posts

Has been fine for a long time recently began getting red drying between some buttons. Is this the red fungus ive heard mentioned?

 

Any ideas what it is or cause and how to fix?

I've never grown lophs so I don't really know for sure. But I'd say that's probably a bacteria. And you could try a frw different things to address it. Maybe water it less for a stat And make sure it's not in a dank environment.  Also try this product called cal-mag. I think it can be helpful for this kinda thing, but.wait untill someone else confirms this.

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.

:( it was going incredibly well for years now all of a sudden this... and it's spread in last couple weeks. It got a bit of damage a couple months ago, some cunt tradie ripped a button off, not sure if that somehow prompted the disease to take hold. i had watered pretty regularly but it always seemed to like that and drained well.

 

any ideas of how to treat if possible? or should i try to regraft healthy looking buttons?
