Anubias Disease?


Anyone have any experience with this anubias affliction? I have seen it much much worse than this. I have seen it cover the rhizome, make its way up the stems and sit on the under side of the leaves.

Below you can see it in the circled areas.

It is a scabby texture.

No part of the rhizome was buried.

is it possible that something knicked it and cause it to start to rot away or something?

+1 to this. Looks similar to when I sliced a small section on the rhizome of one of my anubias's.

It runs too rampant to be from nick. I have seen it completely cover the rhizome and work its why up the stems and down the roots.

I have seen that a few times. It seems that Anubias is susceptible to bacterial rot.

When I have seen that it seems to only affect sections of rhizome and doesn't usually kill the whole plant.

You might try cleaning off the dead tissue and then dunking in a weak hydrogen peroxide solution. That might help.
