So I was testing this Gigantea in a large grain pure mineral mix, long story short she likes peat more. Anyways… when I repotted her I was shocked to see a giant brown “carrot” attached to the base. A quick google search and peak through the forum said its crown rot, but There is no browning of the heart, it is still growing, and the leaves are still sticky. Can anyone tell me definitely if this is crown rot or not, and if I should be absolutely panicked for my pings? :?
