rot/salvia

My poor salvia has had rot since I got it but its getting serious now. I tried drying it out and not watering for awhile and it stopped but every time it goes in a humidity tent it starts again.

I don't think it's a good idea to use fungicide on something I'll be consuming and bob marley isn't working either. How can I end this once and for all?

How big is your plant? Where is the rot? You may be able to take a cutting of a few healthy nodes off the top and root it.
I'm sure there are biodegradable fungicides that you could use, if you weren't planning on using your plant for a while, which I assume you won't be because you'll want it to recover and build up strength before you harvest anyway.

Also you might want to take it out of the tent (once it's rerooted) You may need a lighted soil. You can do this by putting more perlite in it. Don't water it more than once every 3-4 days. Good luck!

Plants quite young not big enough for cuttings. Rot is showing as black spots/holes in leaves and brown streaks on stem.

At this point it's to used to the tent and will wilt and die if removed. It's not being overwatered either.

So basicly fungicide is my only hope?

would be far cheeper for you to concider a new plant.... as you will prolly spend heafty trying to save the little guy without much luck.

when it's that young, and it starts to go. 90% chance says it's gonna go.
