Salvia problem , leaf edges darken
    #4653857 - 09/13/05 04:39 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I have heard that this is a normal thing but now it is too much.
This ?darken? moves quite fast even when I cut the ?black tip?. It also affects the very young leaves so that there is no leaf production.

The plant is acclimatized in house humidity. (No faints)
I used to spray it a few times a day but I have stopped because I find that it doesn?t help with the darkening.

I suspect that it might be a fungus?
Any ideas?

I looked at the picture and i saw some white marks,looking -to me- like fungal disease.Given that

a)you didnt change the climate it grows in
b)extra moisture doesnt seem to reverse it or halt it
c)No foreign organisms are noted microscopically

I would say that it could be either some kind of bacteria or fungi.

Two ideas:

a)Look at the page you found for biological treatment and try some generic cures to see if you notice any difference
b) Look at the leaf under a microscope,or crush some of the "infected" leaf in water and subject that sample to microscopy..It may give you an idea what you are dealing with...

Salvia seems too "easily offended" by everything,its a plant that from what is seems requires constant maintenance,its a plant that you could leave to a friend to water it during a weeks vacation and coming back finding only a black stalk no matter how your friend treated it...

It surely needs some improvement and i will try to do so when i get some samples. Hybrids of that kind are known sometimes to be "wimpy"
