Lobivia pentlandii cristata

Post by Jura » Sat Mar 13, 2021 1:35 pm

Hey guys,

I seem to have found a slight issue with with my pentlandii. The marks on the side seemed to have appeared nearly overnight. Root system seems to be healthy and only one side is affected. This side was turned away from the window so couldn't be possibly sun damage . Checked for scales on nearby plants can't see anything, can't see any of them on lobivia itself either. I am absolutely perplexed on what do i have here.. sprayed everything with red rose clear just in case and quarantined pentlandii. I was also thinking it could be magnesium deficiency but would it affect one side only?

Any opinions would be highly appreciated! Would be a shame to loose such a gorgeous plant.
