  • Algae on cuttings?

    Has anyone seen this before? The bark on these cuttings has a green substance on it, I am guessing algae. They all came from the same person and all have developed this green color. I wiped it off the cutting where it was covering the fig name. I had these in coco coir.





    The pictures don't really do the blue green color justice.

    Mold

    If they are all like then they were probably frost damaged.

      I agree. That looks like mold.

        Hmm I guess I am used to seeing the white fuzzy stuff... I will have to clean them and cross my fingers.

          Molds start white but produce colored spores fairly quickly. Other types of fungi stay white and fuzzy, like mushrooms. Usually it is a white fuzzy type that attacks cuttings, but I have also seen a cutting that had black mold.

          p.s. The blue green stuff is not "aggressive" in my experience, another reason I think the cuttings were damaged.
