MOLDY Amaryllis!!!

florabundant(Z8 Portland, OR)November 7, 2006

HELP!!! I just potted up a really nicely-sized "Red Lion" a couple of weeks ago and I noticed last night that there's some fluffy white fuzz growing around it along the soil line. The bulb itself seems ok (still firm, green, etc).

Is this the kind of thing that would be helped by increased airflow?

Air flow and sunlight will help. Also I would suggest that you sprinkle a little garden sulphur on top of the soil. It will kill the mold.
