Salvia rot
    #6108868 - 09/27/06 10:00 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I'm trying to grow a Salvia D plant, however, it seems to have a death wish. As soon as it starts getting better and growing something happens to it. Now, however, I think its time is finally up. The plant isn't too large, being only a few inches tall, and has stem rot at the top. I keep cutting it off well below the base of the rotted material, however, the tip turns black, shrivels up and then continues on rotting down. I've cut in several times now, and I'm afraid I can't stop the attack. I just cut the top off again today and If it continues at this rate there won't be much of a plant left to grow. Does anyone know of a good way to stop this from happening? I know they like a lot of humidity, but is it possible to give it too much? I'm looking forward to buying/trading for some more plants and if anyone can give me some insight as to why the plant is doing this it would be extremely appreciated.

My leaf tips like to rot. Where are you getting your water from? Try bottles water only. Have you give your plant nutrients yet, you should once a month. My salvia plant is doing fine with very little humidity. It was in my bathroom, and I would close the door after Im done with my shower to keep the humidity in.. which it stayed moist for a hour or so. But I resently took it out to see if it will live.

How often do you water, and how much?

They do quite well in low humidity, but need to very slowly be acclimated to it. You should only be cutting right above the node otherwise it will wither down to the next node.

If i were you, i would take a cutting from it to ensure you have a plant (given that this one is the only one you have. Make sure you get the healthiest cutting you can from it.

I just use regular tap water. Do you think my water is too harsh for the plant? I haven't gave it any nutrients yet, mainly because I was waiting for it to get established and start growing first. I guess that was a mistake.

I tried the whole keeping the bathroom door shut, but that led to a lot of problems with mildew and such. I haven't had the plant long, so I haven't had time to really get it adjusted to lower humidity. However, I'm not entirely convinced that it's completely my fault. It seemed to be a bad plant from the beginning. I received it in the mail with a lot of the lower stem completely rotted. I cut it off and had no problems, but now the poor plants being attacked from the other side. And, unfortunately, she isn't large enough to make a cutting from.

The good news, however, is that normally when I cut off the rot from the top, the next day I could see where it spread. This morning it seemed to be just fine and I didn't see any rot. Hopefully it will stay that way.

Heres the bad news, though: from the main stem another smaller stem grew and it was the one with the leaves. The rot forced that stem to die when it went below it. So now I'm stuck here with a stub of a stem with no leaves. I'm guessing it should be fine though since it has plenty of roots and simply because so many cutting start off this way, right? And so I guess, and correct me if I'm wrong, that I just have to hope that it has enough stored up energy to produce new leaves.

For now she seems to be hanging in there and hopefully she won't give up on me. I know I won't be giving up on her.

That sucks Daotuat. I've cloned a number of salvias now, from my experience young cuttings succumb to that black rot even if you keep cutting it out well below where it's turned black- it just keeps on creeping down. However the slightly older and more established plants I've had seem able to fight it off once it gets to a certain point, so it's not invariably lethal, but does appear to depend on the strength of the plant. I've had it turn up in various humidity and temp ranges, and I'm not sure what causes it- my suspicion is that it could be a virus. At any rate I've had less instances of it now just being careful handling cuttings as little as possible. Sorry this probably doesn't help- get some more cuttings if you can, I guess. Once you get one healthy plant established you'll be away laughing. It grows like fuck in the spring and summer and you end up with yards of the stuff.
Good luck.
