Yes I'm in St. Petersburg FL. What did you do with your DF  when they got them. I'm planning to cut the bad part off and let the plant heal.

If you are talking about the yellow soft mushy fungus?

If that is it, if it is above the root zone I cut it out and paint with a white wash with some copper in it.    I have been making applications of about and Switch, and microbial inoculations for the roots and there are now clean as a whistle.
