Many many thanks to Toby for sending me all these croton sticks a few weeks ago, not to mention a nice plumeria stem and a little orchid that I almost missed in the newspaper packing He said he was just paying it forward for all the nice folks that gave him crotons over the years, so I plan to do the same some day with offspring from these sticks when they blossom into big beautiful crotons in the next few years... Inside all those sticks are: General Macarthur Philip Geduldig ! Diane Eleanor Roosevelt Purity Jungle Queen ! Baron Lecompte ! Rheedii ! Thomas Edison ! Madame Butterfly ! Madame Butterfly Alt. #2 ? a different form?? Clipper Golden Glow ! P. 82 Connie Cutler? Miami Beauty Mortii Johannis ! Major Dade Colonel Gilbert Cutler Claude Lorraine ! Island Breeze I've already lost a few to rot - when I unpacked them in the evening I put them all in a big tub of water to soak, potted them up the next day and place them under plastic on my porch. When I moved them into the greenhouse the following week there was a fair amount of botryis and /or other rot starting, some varieties much worse than others, so I bought some ferti-lome brand systemic fungicide (propiconazole) and sprayed them down pretty heavy and have not seen any new botrytis since, though I did throw away a few totally dead sticks the other day, hence the one empty pot Next time I plan to soak the sticks on arrival in a fungicide bath before potting them up. Any suggestions out there for which fungicide would be best to try?
