Haworthia flower spike necrosis (???) - Causes anyone?

paleopaqueJuly 15, 2013

Hi all, I have a large collection of Haworthia and many are sending up spikes right now. I have a couple that have spike that go limp and all over and subsequently die. Has anyone had this happen to them before, and does anyone know the cause? It's happening mostly to the flower spikes whose flowers haven't yet opened but in the past I've had it happen to flower spikes that have already begun blooming. Any insight into how to prevent this would be greatly appreciated!
