A few days ago I found 3 nice beautiful 18" S. flavas at a local store.
(local meaning about 1 1/2 hour drive away)
When I went to re-pot my flavas tonight I discovered that what I thought were three are actually 8 individual rhizomes.
However, almost all of them have the white fluffy mold, or fungus, or whatever it is.
What to do?
It is down on the rhizomes and the roots.
I loaned out my neem oil some time ago and it never came back.
(it said it was fungicide and insecticide)
The local stores (meaning only a few minutes away) are out and won't get more until next spring (planting season is over they said).
Do I make the long drive to find some fungicide or is there something else I can do? I can rub much of it off with my fingers under water, but surely much still remains.
Obviously I don't want to pot these plants until I get rid of the creeping crud. Can I store them in a bowl of water for a day or so until I get this fixed?
What is the best thing to do here?
