Fungus? Beautiful Plumeria Half dead, what to do?
I love my Plumeria and I think if I don't act soon it might keel over on me!
About a year ago I remember a guy looking at it and saying he thought it had a "bug." I was thinking literal so I sprayed it with insecticide.. and I've done it over and over.
What I think he meant by bug was a fungus. Maybe the Plant is old..because it looks whitish/gray kinda bumpy branches with some cracks in them. Definite there is some sort of fungus on it because I can see it growing.
I noticed just the other day that half of it has leaves and half doesn't. So I went to test a branch and it snapped right off. Hollow inside. oddly enough down that same branch I see a little green spout. What do I need to do? Do I need to cut off the dead pieces? If I don't act properly will the whole thing die?
And if it is a fungus what do I spray on it? There was nothing at Home Depot or Lowes- could only find fungicide for rose bushes.
Here are some pictures. I took a lot.. tree is not looking good :( Also if you click on the pictures it will make them bigger.
Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance for any info!
