Recovered from severe Fusarium
« on: February 11, 2008, 12:25:23 »
On the 24 November 2006 I noticed a clivia plant that fell over towards the side of the pot amongst other clivias under large trees. A clivia plant that does not grow vertical anywhere in my yard or in the shade house is very easily noticed because I never tolerate a clivia plant to lean over towards a side because I simply do not like them growing horizontally and it looks untidy. I push them upright and support the plant at the base.

The plant and pot was removed from the others and was completely loose in the growing medium. I suspected Fusarium root rot but once the plant was removed from the pot the result was far worse than just root rot. There were 6 affected roots left and the bottom of the Pseudo stem was badly rotten away. I washed the soil off the plant in a corner of the yard on a sandy patch where no other growth of any kind is. I removed all the mushy roots and washed the plant in a SporeKill solution by brushing the stem with a old tooth brush. I then applied neat Bravo to the affected parts. The plant had 2 suckers with 4 and 6 leaves each. Their few roots were also starting to be affected by the Fusarium rot. There were so few roots that I decided to pot this plant into a 20cm pot which was much to big to accommodate the few roots of this mother plant with two suckers. The potting medium was fairly dry. I then watered the plant with Root Plus by BCP which consists of spores of carefully selected strains of the natural soil-borne fungi Trichoderma harzianum and Paecilomyces lilacinus and once a month thereafter. I also watered the plant with Microbial Biostart on a weekly basis. I continued this treatment for 3 months and then only watered the plant every 2 weeks because I mix a Haifa controlled release fertilizer into my growing medium.

I noticed that the roots were growing over the top of the 20cm pot yesterday. When I removed the plant peg and noticed my note about the Fusarium treatment. I looked up the plant stats on my database where I collected the history of 24 November 2006. I removed the plant from the pot and there was hardly a cup full of growing medium left in the pot. I washed the masses of healthy white roots and left it on the lawn in the rain overnight. I repotted the plant into a 30cm pot because I did not remove the original 2 suckers which now have 8 and 9 leaves each. There are another 3 suckers appearing as well. Here is a photo of what the Pseudo stem looks like today with the previous damage clearly visible.

This photo compares the 20cm pot from which the plant was removed yesterday and the repotted plant in a 30cm pot to have sufficient space for the new suckers as well for the next 2 or 3 years and will look forward to experience a speciman plant pot with at least 3 umbels next year and perhaps 7 umbels in 2 years time.
