Question Java Fern disease.. any cure?

Hi,

I've come to the conclusion that my Java Ferns has partially died due to some fern disease. Out of no where they started to go brown and die. Spreading from one patch. It cant be nutrient deficiency because my other plants are thriving. Does anyone know of the disease that could be causing this? Its happened to my friend too, where he lost all his ferns (java and african). And how do i get rid of it cause there are new shoots developing and i dont want them to die like the others.

here is the thread i posted before. Since then i removed all the affected leaves (leaving about 4 or 5), but then those leaves got the brown stuff too.

I'm not quite sure, but the same or similar thing has happened to me before. I always attributed it to something more obvious, rather than a "disease", but maybe I was wrong. Did you happen to bury the roots? Break the rhisome? Has the lighting or concentration of ferts changed lately? When mine occured, I think I assumed either the rhisome got buried or the lighting was too high.
Good luck.

I've got the same problem, i removed all the affected leaves, even those with just a single brown dot on them. it seemed to stop spreading, but it did show up in another area. The only thing that i found was that the rhizomes had a lot of mulm caught in them. and this happened in the thickest growing areas. so i'm going to try and keep mine clean and see what happenes.
