After receiving ephippiata a few weeks ago, I had a catastrophe with my grow chamber. Many plants dried out, including ephippiata. All of them have recovered, except ephippiata and it looks like humidity wasn't the problem. The leaves are dying from the tip and from the stem. Even after they've been cut off, black continues to spread. The black has also come up from the base, climbing the stem. I'm almost sure that it's black rot. The plant is going to die I'm sure because there are no more leaves that aren't dying.
Should I remove the growing tip and attempt a very small cutting? I'm going to save the plant in a separate tank in case it sprouts up later. Does anyone know of a good way to get rid of black rot so the whole plant doesn't go?
