    I dont think its rot I will be able to tell quickly any way. The leaf is still healthy and dewy looking. Its in a well drained mix kept just damp and under bright light 70% humidity or so and not too hot around 20 -28 degrees C The other 6 seedlings are all much smaller any way.

    LOL! And to think I fretted about GA3! 10% bleach, like B. liniflora, was all that was necessary?

    The smoke water worked as well but both bleach and smoke did not work with all the species I sowed I guess that the GA3 would work better? I just didn't have any available.

    You were right hcarlton, its rot, the leaf past the insect lost all its dew, so I cut off the leaf below the insect, hopefully my over zealous feeding wont do any further harm. At least I learn t something.

    Don't know how he did it, but I have created effctive smoke water by burning dried leaves and grass, and pouring water through it into a container, then liberally moistened the pot with it. Seems to work.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
