Acacia Maidenii Weird Root Growth
MadHatter posted a topic in Australian Native PlantsHi My first post as a new member so not sure if I'm posting correctly, kindly point me in the right direction if I'm not. Can anyone tell me what the growth on this Maidenii root is? Is it diseased? should I be worried?
Mites? Help diagnosing and treating.
tedzr posted a topic in Cacti & SucculentsHi all - thanks for taking the time to look at this post. Hopefully you guys can help me find a solution for the issue I am having with a number of my ornamental plants. Essentially I think I have two types of problems going on with my cacti. 1# Scale bugs and #2 - Mites. Please see attached images. (Thousand words). #1 Scale #2 Mites?? (Patient Zero?) As you can see, it's a cactastrophy. I have left it for a few years, hoping that the problem would go away - but now it has shifted into the next gear and I'm worried that I might lose my entire collection. These plants have never been treated with any form of insecticide, and I hesitated to do that for obvious reasons, but now I'm prepared to pull out the big guns if need be, use systemics etc, and even cull / sell infected stock to any interested buyers. These guys have been a part of my life, and I feel like I have let them down. If possible I would really like to rescue this collection and keep the genetics for the long haul. Help please! Kind regards, tedzr
Help with Pachanoi white spots please!
einseins posted a question in Cactus & Succulent Identificationhi gang, Hoping you can help me with this problem my pachanois have. The white spotting is only in small areas now, but I want to get on top of it before it gets worse. I'm sure I've seen this kind of thing before here but can't find anything. They are north facing with full sun, watered every 1-2 days and no ferts at the moment. Any help appreciated PS - Sorry about the rotation....with all these silicon chips and such
Sad Cathas spidermites still my problem???
woodferret posted a topic in EthnobotanyThe big ones are two years old and the littles are less than a year. All of my new growth is coming out shrunken, dry, and brittle. In the past I have had mite problems with these results, but they have cleared with insecticidal soap/ neem oil spray. These plants have been getting treatments weekly and yet they still are ailing. Healthier looking leaves do sprout sometimes but they are misshapen and often speckled yellow. I'm out of ideas... Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks!
