Root Rots

These fungi will show up in different ways and all are species of some of the common root rots. The host range of these fungi is very wide as it affects a range of woody shrubs and perennials. The fungus occurs naturally in the temperate and tropical regions. These soil borne fungi infects roots of plants, move up the stems resulting into diebacks, yellowing of foliage, poor plant vigor and darkening of larger roots.


Yellowing of the foliage and poor plant vigour (stressed plant).

Wilts and die back of the stems and branches.
