Today, as I was tending to my outdoor plants, I suddenly spotted this…
Is this ROT????
I looked around outside yesterday and this was not here at all. It has been a little cold at night in SoCal (40sF) and this NOID Cattlya I got for 50% off probably doesn’t like that too much, but it’s been warm during the day.
…so I cut it off and applied some cinnamon on the wound. The black stuff was a little squishy, but not falling apart or anything.
Am I crazy and this is just cold damage, or is the the DUN DUN DUN….rot?
