help with bulb rot

Posted by Jessiann63 8 (My Page) on

some of my plants have yellow leaves, and some of the leaves have red blotches on them. some of the bulbs look like they are starting to rot. This happened last year around this time, It's rainy season here in south Louisiana. I have no place to keep my bulbs out of the rain. Is there anything to spray on them to keep this from happening?

RE: help with bulb rot

Any kind of fungicide will help. Funginex works well. They can take loads of water as long as they have excellent drainage. I grow some as epiphytes near Houston. In the deep south you can also grow them in bark.
