    Default AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

    Something weird is happening to my paphs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have leaves that are turning black, not mushy but dry like, but the medium is not bone dry....I don't know what is going on....its happening to my Ma Belle which has a spike! Very very very worried here. The new growth on the Ma Belle doesn't seem to be affected.

    Any suggestions?

    Which leaf? If it's the bottom one, then the plant is just sucking up the food in there to support the plant and flower... if it's one of the top ones... then...

    try a systemic fungicide.


    figners crossed and good luck!

    cheers

    Aaron,

    I'm around on Friday if you want any help. Too much fert can also burn the leaves quite severely. Parvis are particularly sensitive to salts. Drying out too much will pull the salts to the leaf tips and exacerbate the problem.

    It is the bottom leaf, but I'll still keep a systemic fungicide handy just in case.
