    Question Grammatophyllum Problem

    I have been watching my Gram. Elegans like a hawk in anticipation of possible spike activity. Instead i've found a questionable area on a large p-bulb. What i've done is water it with my fungicide/bactericide stuff. There are new roots everywhere, would a little cinnamon help?? Other than these icky spots it is otherwise thriving. Would a fan help? It is 90+ with high humidity right now. I let this one dry out between waterings with rainwater.
    Any help would be really appreciated. This is one of my prize plants!
    Thanks....Connie

    Hi , Looks like mold a fan would help , also does it wipe off ? if so you could use some straight peroxcide on a tissue or ? to clean it off . Or just pour some on the area . It has been hot here and humid I have 3 fans going in the green house . Gin

    Better air movement should help if it is mold. Remove it with a cloth and treat with peroxide as Gin suggested.

    Cheers,
