T.peruvianus with some kind of mold!!
    #1040383 - 11/10/02 05:30 AM (16 years, 1 month ago)

Hi..
since it is now winter here, and there isn't much light from my window, I put my cacti inthe botttom of the room, hoping it would go into dormancy.. well, it hasn't grown, but this morning while looking carefully at it, I noticed some kind of black mold between the ribs... It seem that the cacti has also lost some of his dark green color, his is light green in the middle, but at the top&bottom, he is that normal dark green.. the soil is not moist , I haven't watered it for more then 3 weeks, so I don't think it is some kind of root rot, but it is quite humid in my room, terrarium, aquarium, spraying salvia and other, etc... can anyone help me? I put the cactus next to the window again, but as I said, there not that much of light, very cloudy.. enough for salvia, sinicuichi, 2 morning glory plants and a small HBW seedling... I could put it under 2 36w tubes upstairs, is it worth it?

Take it to a room with no 'special' fungi in it, and spray it with a fungicide / insecticide. I believe 'systemic' is the kind you want. Unless you plan on eating the cactus within a month, then it will not have any negative affects in that respect.
The spray should clear up the mold within one or two applications (especially since it only just occured)...
It pays to give your cacti a bit of a spray once in a while...if you don't like the idea of artificial sprays, there are 'natural' alternatives avaliable.
