PostSubject: Help needed - sick pachanoii   Mon Jun 30, 2014 9:56 am

Hi folks,
Just noticed this morning by pachanoii has some nasty looking patches on it.
Background of plant - purchased a few weeks ago, dug it out of very wet and dense soil. Washed the roots and let it dry for about 3 days (it was perfectly dry by the time a replanted it) it is planted in my usual soil mix - sand, scoria, sifted potting mix. the mix was and is perfectly dry.
The plant is situated on the covered decking area, we have had some pretty chilly days but the pachanoii next to it does not have any of the same marks.
The following are some pics of the patches.
Hopefully it's nothing too bad.

How chilly is chilly? If there was any water on it and you had a light frost it could be frost burns. Looks a bit like there is some scale there as well.

We haven't had anything under 0 as far as I know, I think around 2-3 was the coldest. I will move it to the garage it stays marginally warmer in there. Hopefully it heals up from it.
I actually plan on chopping this one up into a few pieces to propagate it. So I am not concerned about cosmetic damage, as long as it doesn't growth.

I think that is a root related issue, the roots have been damaged by pests or the plant is suffering from root rot/bacteria. You can check the roots by taking it out of the soil and inspecting them, look for the typical white fluff of root mealies and look for any signs of root rot, which can look like orange buildup around the roots or soft squishy roots.

If all that is negative it could be a nutrient issue.

Thanks HN, I'll lift the plant on the weekend and have a look. The roots seemed fine when I planted it, minimal roots but they appeared healthy and nothing unusual may have missed something though.
