    The first, third, and fourth pic. look like mite damage to me. I use Pentac by Aquaflow...3/4 teaspoon to a gallon of water. Spray twice ( all leaves and top of media )a week apart. Works for me...Betty

    Jordan, there was no odor.
    hmmm.....iits not that horrible, voracious fungus then....i would still be inclined to think it IS either a bacterial or fungal infection. If you can get Champ DP by Yates, use that on it once a week, for 4 weeks and see what happens. If you cant get the Champ DP, try any other copper oxychloride, and if it doesnt clear up after 4 weeks, chop it and dust the wound with cinnamon.
