Sick Money Tree
I read through the other threads about money trees, but I didn't see anything like my problem. In August, I purchased a bonsai money tree from a local vendor. The only instructions I was given were to keep the tree dry, and in fact thay didn't even tell me what kind of tree it was. A few weeks latter I realized that one of the five stalks was more of a redish color and wrinkled. When touching it, it proved to be more squishy than the other stalks. This only occurs along the bottom few inches near the roots. Over time, the rest of the stlks have slowly become like this. I've tried washing the tree and removing the first stalk as well as a multiuse fungicide/ insectide. Also, as the tree conditon worsened the leaves became spotted and fell off. At first, it was just the one that origionally appeared sick, while the reast showed pretty new growth, but over time it became all of the stalks. Has anyone heard of anything like this? Is there anything I should be wary of ot watch out for when I buy a new one. This one I'm griefed to say is probably going to die.
