White Mold
    #4356959 - 06/30/05 10:16 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

My S. Divinorum had been sitting at a Northern facing window since late May, when it arrived as a cutting. I transferred the plant to a larger pot, and then sometime after, I noticed rooting at the first visible node above the soil, so I added more soil (novice mistake, I guess)to cover these roots. The stem was obviously dense in the soil and with the moisture and diffused light from the window, provided optimal conditions for mold growth. And it happened, now there is white mold at the bottom of the stem and I am worried for the future of this plant.

A fellow Shroomerite was good enough to suggest getting the abundant soil away from the mold, which I did, and to let it get a good amount of light. Is there anything else I can do to treat this problem/prevent this from causing more damage? Is my plant doomed? Is this mold dangerous to humans?

depending on how big the plant is you might want to think about doing a cutting just in case. Some mold is dangerous to humans but I really don't think you have anything to worry about. This looks like a sign of over watering yes Sally loves water but you can let the top of the soil dry out a little I only water once I see the leaves start to drop.

The plant is not that big, and a cutting wouldn't be possible unless I did it up a node or two from the infected area. Moreover, I hope that this can remain a last resort.

I'm not positive that this mold is the same species I've seen in attempts to research treatment (Sclerotinia), however I do remember reading that some disease lays dormant in the soil and certain conditions will trigger this visible growth.

Any further help would be greatly appreciated. I really hope I can get this plant to flourish at least somewhat before the season is out. She is outside now, and I think that will be much better in a lot of ways. Thanks Gniom
