These are my Arabicum plants. They did arrive today. One is a Arabicum yak Yemen and the other a rcn hybrid. I also got a gift. So no idea what that is.

What do you think of the second photo. Is that a bad spot? Or is it nothing special. It is not soft or something.

I hope it is nothing. Otherwise I need to get some sulfur. It does not feel soft. It is completely hard.

It's probably just scar tissue. Follow Rick's advice on care upon arrival (in your other thread) and they'll be putting out leaves and growing for you in no time at'all. nodding

Yes he gave me advice, but I like to know if it is rot. Otherwise I have to cut it of and treat it with sulfur. They are dormant now. So they do not need much care.

Yes I wait patiently. I do not have to pot them straight away after all. They are in obligatory dormancy after all. Already for more than a month.

Willeke,
I sent a note to you stating that I thought you should check it out and treat with sulfur dust.

I am of the thought that it would be worth sending off a quick note to Sundaram and ask him. He may have treated it himself with something. He will answer you and if he has not, then he will probably give you similar advise as I.

When I get trees with dark spots on them. I usually scrape it off so that I can see if it is only on the surface. If it is more and needs to be cut off a bit more. Then dust with sulfur dust and hang it with a soft rope in a dry and warm site for a week or two. Not in Sunlight.
I have read that many in Thailand and India use Turmeric powder to treat. Need to do some checking and ask them why and how it works.

Do not worry about this tree, Willeke. It will be fine. I always like to check these things before burying them in soil and not knowing what I am dealing with prior.

Thank you Rick. I did sent a mail to Sundaram to ask him. So we wait and see what he does say. The A 24 that I got as gift is a Arabicum yak lopburi.

Cinnamon also has fungicidal properties, interesting about the turmeric, I'll have to look into that.

Sounds impressive. I like the thought that it is blooming in winter. Although I doubt that it will do so in my winter with hardly any sun.

I see. It surely would be nice, but taken the idea they need warmth and sun I doubt it. After all it is now winter and it is in dormancy.

I wouldn't mind receiving one as a gift. Green Grin!

For those viewing this thread who do not know what an arabicum "Yak Lop Buri" looks like, here's a picture of one. (Not mine.)

No I did not mind either, it is impressive. Like it very much. Now I first have to pot it, but I first have to know if it is rot or not. I sent an email as Rick stated to the seller to ask him. No answer yet. If it is rot and not treated yet. Can I also do it with cinnamon. I know it is not good with seedlings, but this has to dry for a week. So perhaps cinnamon will do now.

Willeke,
I am not totally sold on cinnamon on a open tissue site of a root which will be buried later. Do not have enough info on this. It has always been recommended to me by veterans of Adeniums to use sulfur dust and let dry.
I will send a note to an acquaintance to see what there use of Turmeric is. Reading has shown many uses and one as a anti-septic.

Thanks Rick. I did write Sundaram, but he did not answer yet. So if I did not hear from him by the weekend I will treat it to be sure. I can only see that the spot is deeper than the rest. So perhaps he already did cut it out, but not sure till he answers.
