Stem rot or Mold?

  1. Just noticed this on my plant and needed guidance on what this might be. The last week was foggy here in San Francisco. But the past few days have been decent. I get a really good breeze. Here's some pics. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  4. Pythium is a mold often called stem rot, bud rot etc

    all depends on where the mold fungi lands

    in most cases observation is the best tool

    carefully wrap the location in a trash bag

    so not to spread the easily spread spores and snip if off

    but hey you did that all ready !!

    look to improving your venting or grow location

    to prevent further outbreaks

    I use Neem oil to defend against this and bug attacks

    good luck

  5. Looks like stem rot man, make sure you don't have any caterpillars Kuching inside them. I'm dealing with PM right now too. Only thing you can do is cut out the infected parts, spray a fungicide, and lessen the conditions that bring it about.

  6. Thanks for the input yall. I'm outside so I'm at the mercy of mother nature. I read somewhere I could make a diluted spray baking soda , milk or H2O2. I have all 3 of these available to me which one should I try first

  7. IMO: neither

    that crap is to break the surface tension

    between the fungus, powdery mildew and the plant skin is all

    outside ...make a breezeway so the plant dries out quicker after a rain
