  Is this the symptom of overwatered Amorphophallus?
From: Andras Sziranyi <asziranyi at gmail.com> on 2009.05.29 at 09:44:44(19374)
Hi All,

After few years of inactivity now I have more time to care for Amorphophalluses. I have only one specie (but one plant has different stub - we can discuss it later) the A. konjac. I hold them inside our flat because I don't have garden.

Few days ago I've found that the leaves started to searing. Here is a picture about this:


Could anybody know what wants the leaves tell me? :-)

Thank you,

Andras from Budapest, Hungary

PS: Just imaging is here anybody from Hungary, too?

Hi Andras,

This necrosis and burning of the edges of the leaf tissue is
typically a symptom of over fertilization.

Regards, Scott

Hi All,

Thanks you for the responses. Let's see the answers:

- Sun burning and "peeling" - what means a type of mechanical damage (As I am correct)

- Over fertilization.

Because all my plants are inside the flat and none of them are in front of the window, the sun burst isn't my problem. As I know there was no mechanical damage, too.

But I fertalized my plants a lot, so it seems to be the real problem.

Thank you again Agoston and Scott!
