  Re: [aroid-l] amorph tuber rot problems

Dear Dr.Taylor
A very happy new year. Tuber rot in A.paeoniifolius is
a serious problem at times. I am sure you may be
starting with healthy planting material. The soil
should be certainly well drained. Please check for
nematode population in the potting mixture.
Meloidogyne incognita infests the roots and tubers
paving way for a lot of secondary pathogens. If you
can afford to discard the infected planting material
and start with fresh planting material providing
proper soil drainage, the problem could be controlled.
