    I showed it to a professor of plant pathology. She said it is a fungus, although she really couldn't say what kind without looking at it under a microscope, but it is most likely either Pythium, Rhizoctonia, or Phytopthora.

    OK I just found this very agressive fungis on my sarra. It has grown to several inches up the plant in only a few hours. It is white and foamy and stinks. What is it, what does it do, and will cleary fungiside kill it

    thanks all

    I hope the professor isn't right. Pithium is one of the crown rot fungi. You'll wake up one day, the plant will look thirsty, then you'll notice that it has separated from the roots completely.

    So thats what crown root fungis means. Thats sounds like one to fear.

    anyway this plant is doing fine now, massive doses of clearly fungiside along with a couple of ortho products was enough to kill the fungis.

    Unfortunately I did have a large Judith hindle die of some sort of black spot fungis shortly after this. The disease killed the plant faster than I would have thought or it died of shock.
