Piper nigrum propagation issues
« on: June 28, 2019, 09:58:23 AM »
Hello all.

A question on infection.

I am familiar with different methods of Piper propagation.  We cant use seeds. Now we are sticking with layering but we keep getting a crippling percent of black rot.  Even on potted plants that i root onto other pots (nodes already have root buds), they start to rot as well...im a bit stuck on why and how to fix it.  Would really appreciate some help if anyone has any experience :)

Use a copper spray, the problem is bacterial rot.
