    Default Rot on Rhynchorides Bangkok Sunset

    Hello everyone ... we had tons and tons of rain here these last few weeks and it looks like one of my favorite orchids got rot.

    Here's a pic of my Rhynchorides Bangkok Sunset's new leaf ... is this "crown rot" that will kill the whole plant? I removed all of the rotting leaf tissue and washed it off with soapy water and added cinnamon. I don't have anything anti-fungal. The rot didn't appear to extend all the way down into the new leaf tissue emerging, just most of the new leaf.

    Anything else I should do other than wait? It's very dry and sunny this week so I'm hoping the rot will dry out quickly.

    Thanks!

    Looks like a crown root. keep air circulation high and don't water the foliage and yes cinnamon powder could help in curing the rot to an extent. recommend a close watch of the plant

    If the plant stops growing from the top, it will throw a keikei eventually. You can use the old fashioned listerene mouthwash as an anti-fungal. If the plant looks like it's getting brown in other places you can rub cinnamon (be generous) into the brown and then cut watering in half making sure no water gets into the crown in future watering. Or, you can mix a spray bottle of half listerene and half water and spray lightly onto the plant making sure air movement is good so the plant dries out quickly. The cinnamon does pretty good, but with a plant that has previously had rot, preventative spraying is almost always necessary to avoid future rot issues.

    Well unfortunately this plant died. Went from looking like it was going to make it to all the leaves falling off. I'll try listerene on some of the other plants with issues. I just sprayed with 3% hydrogen peroxide and an organic anti-fungal. The fungus spread to about half my plants ...
