Hi Again:

Oops. Good eyes Ron. That should read "... you need to get all the
_mycelia_ out of the tuber ..." , that being the vegetative part of
the fungus consisting of fine threadlike hyphae that can invade good
tissue and help break it down incurring further necrosis.

I noticed that you mentioned "Mycorrhizae" as the cause of the tuber rot. I
am not aware that the mycorrhizae fungus has a negative effect on tubers or
roots. If it does, I would like to know about it. Ron
