Issues with P. vulgaris ssp vulgaris

by TissueBob » Thu May 10, 2018 8:40 am

Hi everyone,
My P. vulgaris gets rotten spots at the edges of the leaves, as in the picture. Some plants are already rotten in the middle and therefore dead. Has anyone any idea what the cause might be?
The plants are in the shade. The substrate is a mixture of peat and perlite with dolomitic lime.
All other plants grow well, only this pot shows these symptoms.

Thank you very much!

Low humidity perhaps?

isolates the pot, it can be a mold, a virus, mushroom ,etc. Quarantine it
if there is no improvement, it destroys .

you water by capillarity ?

no problem of low temperatures or frosts while they were in bloom?
