Sick Plant

Recommended Posts

you need to really look at the plant , go through all branches looking for any bug or bug holes 

checking branches haven't broken away from the main trunk just to be sure its not an above ground problem 


but i suspect you have issues under the soil surface at the root system , might have to do some digging around

got anymore pic's & do you have a microscope / jewellers loupe to look at things close up

if it is root rot it's hard to recover from but not impossible 

being that your currently into the last half of the plants life cycle = flowering 


any repotting will mostly provide negative results , mainly because she is 

already hindered from her potential , repotting during flower will only be a

further hindrance to that potential 


root rot is a pathogen & is caused by over watering which your other plants in the back ground 

look to have that droopy leaf look like they are getting the same treatment 


because its a soil borne pathogen you could make a compost extract to try & out compete the 

pathogen with beneficial microbes but like a yellowing leaf on a plant , it will never go back to 

being green , same as a damaged root system it will never recover , the plant can grow new

roots though but once again your already in the last half of the plants life cycle , not enough time

to really do much , some of us will cut our losses & save on fertilizer , time & effort & cull her 


Phytophthora root and stem rot is a soil-borne fungal disease caused by Phytophthora sojae.

This pathogen causes seed rots, pre- and post emergence damping off of seedlings and stem rot

of plants at various growth stages.

Disease development is favored by soil temperatures above 60f and high soil moisture.
