new cutting that seems to have developed rot!
Today I received a cutting that seems to have developed a bit of rot during shipping. On the cutting there must have still been the little stubs from where the leaves were cut off that didnt completely fall away. It looks as though they were squished to the plant and began to decay, which in turn caused rot within the stem of the cutting.
There are 3 areas with rot that I can see so far and they are all at the end of the plumeria with the new leaf growth. Needless to say, I have contacted the seller in request for a healthy cutting, but nontheless I'm desperate to salvage this one in case.
Any suggestions? Can I make a cutting from the healthy plant at the bottom where it would be rooted(ie cut off a portion of the cutting that would no longer have new leaf growth)? Will this successfully root and generate a new tip? There is only about an inch of healthy growth above the rot. is this enough for a rooting? Also it seems there may be some black leaf rot.
HELP WHAT DO I DO?!
