I'm assuming this is blight

asleep_in_the_gardenJuly 7, 2005

I've got a situation where my plant is dying from the ground up. Blight,right? Here's how I thought I'd deal with it. The plant is still in the same gallon container that it came in when I got it and I've been meaning to pot it up when I could get the time to get supplies,so assuming the whole thing isn't yellow by the time I can do it I intend to bury the blighted part completely beneath the soil level.

Good idea?

Bad idea?

Wow, I am no expert in diseases, but I would get it out of that gallong pot ASAP. That is probably the cause of your difficulties. Good luck.

Blight,right?

Wrong. LOL

The plant is yellow b'c it's still sitting in thje original container.

Get it out of there and plants inground or a much bigger container and all will be well/

When plants are rootbound they can't get enough nutirents and oxygen and so the folaige turns yuellow.

Blight to most folks means an infection of some kind or another.

COOL!
As soon as i can get to it i'll find a way to improve on my sad situation. I'd pop em in the ground if I hadn't heard that the soil here is so bad. Mostly clay from what i'm hearing.
That's bad,right?

Even planting in clay is better than leaving it in the current pot.
