I checked on my P x weser this morning and was shocked to find that many of its leaves had become soft and many were detachable from the centre of the plant. The part of the leaves close to the centre and the centre itself have this white coloured stuff on them. In fact I think the centre of the plant can be plucked out from the soil. However, the plant still looks green from the outside.
In contrast, my other P x weser has crunchy leaves and the leaves aren't detachable (I pulled softly).
It's been raining heavily these few days and the Pings were placed in partial shelter and put in rather deep bowls, so the water level was almost full when I checked this morning. They are potted in pure peat I think.
I promptly emptied the 2 bowls and put the 2 pings separately in a shaded area. I also sprayed the white stuff with fungicide.
Is my first ping dead? I have a strange feeling it is. All the leaves seem to be detachable, and not just one or two.
Is there anything more I should do?
