sprinkle some cinnamon powder on that brown spot as well as the soil at the base of the plant, it will prevent the growth of fungus.

Yeah cinnamon and like I said, no watering/misting for the obvious, pull moist soil as much as pos around stem base and a small fan for circulation will certainly help and just pray for the best..i have things like this turn around so don't ever give up cuz i know she's trying to make it, they are a kick ass resilient species, but beind that overwatering is the #1 killer, if thats the case unfortunately theres nothin we can do..get a new plant and learn from our mistakes..this is how we learn. Dont stress brother, were here for ya!!..maybe a lil perlite on top may dry up a lil?..keep us posted!

I also heard that dried garlic powder is good for keeping away fungus and mould, might help Smiley

If it comes from dehydrated garlic that is then ground, yes, it would probably be good for a number of demon creatures...problem...commercial garlic powder like cheap cinnamon powder usually has corn starch Sad that would feed the bugs.

ya the flakes are probably a better option. Give it a try and let us know what you find Cheesy I for one love to use spices in the garden instead of chemicals.

I make a quite effective insectacide:
Get a jug of hot water, put cigarette butts in it and leave it for a few hours. Then add a little more hot water with garlic, chilli, onion and canola oil. Then leave this for a few hours.
Put the mixture in a container that allows you to spray, and use it when insects are causing problems.

IMO using commerical cigarettes is something I would stay away from, it contains arsenic and other compounds I would not like to ingest. Better to grow you own tobacco and use the leaves. Mapacho is easy to come by and has enough nicotine to kill any bug.

Then again, I have never seen a bug resist to spices, especially Bay leaves, Small leaf Basil , Oregano, Thyme, Cinnamon, Black pepper, all spice, clove, etc. I have never used a chemical and my plants still strive and I have no need to fear consuming them
