Cactus Rot
    #11242471 - 10/13/09 10:53 PM (8 years, 9 days ago)

I've got some rot on some Trich. bridgesii. Should I cut off the entire lower section that has any apparent rot in order to prevent it spreading? The bridgesii are 1' long cuttings that are not rooted, but are sending out tap roots. They are currently standing upright in my windowsill, but sunlight has been minimal from clouds the past few days.

If the base is completely brown with rot, salvage as much as you can immediately.  I made the mistake of waiting half a day and losing even more tissue.  Now I have a small top half fighting for its life.

Yeah man, cut it now.

Mine got it a little more seriously, it started getting rot spots all over the stem.

Oh bridgesii  :nonono:

After cutting should I use ISO to sterilize? Or just flame sterilize the blade before hand?

You can to be on the safe side, I've never had too much of a problem, as long as the blade isn't dirty or rusty.

A took my kitchen knife and a lighter.  Bottom hasn't gotten infected.  I dipped the freshly cut base in 8% IBA rooting hormone though, which may or may not have fungicide as a filler.

I had one rot at the base but also threw out roots. I just left it and it actually started growing just fine.
  I got lucky though lol.

Bridgesii's remind me of Lepers for some odd reason, maybe because they are prone to lesions and weepy black wounds. :smirk:

Having your tools as sterile as possible is always good.  I frequently wipe my pruners, razor blades, and even forceps/tweezers with iso alcohol, though they DO get frequent use and I often feel just as comfortable making cuts without sterilizing.  I mostly sterilize for the plants I love most :smile:
