So, I recently received a new good size Desert Rose from someone I previous ordered from. The previous order was in good health and is still doing fine.
This order, however, when it arrived I noticed alot of black in the caudex and roots. So, I opened it to clear out the fungus -the whole caudex was empty and mush, along with the roots and a couple to the stems. So, by the time I cleaned it all out and cut out the black areas not too much left. So, I cinnamon it and it is sitting airing out. I got a hold of the person who sold it to me and sent her the before pics and after pics of the cleaning out. I do not hold much to it surviving-but, I am trying. So, we shall see.

I am enclosing some b before and after pics.

Carol

If survived that may be a cool feature in the future. I know a man experimenting with rotting root caudex plants, cleaning out and plant with exposed roots. Some die, the ones survived looks awsome. But unfortunately they don't fit my budget.

Ohh, yes. That is the result you get from watering desert rose in winter. They must be bone dry in winter for best health.

Yes I understand that from your previous posts.

I guess what I ment to say was: Unless she have different care routines for different specimens all the plants risks to have various degree of health problems. Wrong care affects every specimen.
