Just wondering if anyone else is having any major issues with Tricho's this year? The weather up here in east gippsland has been really hot and quite high humidity and im having some serious black plague appearing on quite a number of plants in the garden. nothing dead but really unsightly. it's made some perfect plants look like absolute trash bags. has anyone had any success combating this evil bacteria. or is it just a simple case of too bad too sad due to the weather?

any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I read somewhere , avoiding the use of nitrogen containing fertilizers helps reduce the spread, but im not too sure...

I've got only the usual suspects growing here - PC Pedro, a couple of peruvians (including a pair of brown spined, blue skinned critters), a few pach x scop hybrids and a handful of penis plants, and none seem to be suffering at all from the rain. All are grown outdoors, about a half in the ground, and the bulk of their feeding is good old pelletised chook poo.

I suspect that while trichs like a fair amount of water they do also like good drainage, and continual cold wet feet certainly don't help them along. I also reckon that if they get too dry for too long they can develop a susceptibility to rotting.

I had it happen in a normal occurrence few dots here or there over my collecting years, cant be helped, but yeah as I said the humidity seems to be causing some major grief for me. that or I've got some serious AIDS goin on here.
I know Prier has been looking into finding out some more detailed info into what causes blackdeath ooze on tricho's and it seems it most def is fungal. strange that it never really affects anything else tho. and I doubt it's wet feet related as some of the other things planted outside would collapse and rot well before a tricho ever would. Anyhoo this is one smaller fellow that really showed some awesome symptoms. Never have I seen them bulge so large(It did get a little larger before stopping) he calloused over tho tough little bugger.

Shocked

Hmm... I've seen similar things happen to a couple of small trich pups I was trying to get to throw roots, but both calloused over and no further harm came of them. I have also seen similar things happen to Myrtillocactus geometrizans and Cereus peruvianus. I have mainly seen it occur in cold, wet conditions, but beyond that I can offer no help or advice.

I had a mid cut that refused to produce a healthy pup, just as they got big enough to de-graft they'd get severe black-rot spreading right to the tip, I got so frustrated and probably should have disposed of it, but being not one to give in, I grafted the next pups' tip onto globular Echinopsis and now its growing fine no sign of rot. Hahaha... take that rot!

I have thought about this for a while and have some theories about it

I think it's bacterial

It lives in the clone and it's usually heavily propagated clones that prove black plague positive.

But it can probably even come in the seed.

Some clones are worse than others.

no known cure.

I am not helping I know

That is an unhealthy looking cactus. I've not seen anything like it. i was expecting and oozing black spots that cacti sometimes get, but rarely prove to be problematic, beyond being unsightly.
