The common, quick-spreading fungal disease Botrytis cinerea strikes in damp, humid weather, and often enters the lettuce through a cut or tear in a leaf. Affected leaves are inedible and should be thrown away but not composted. The worst scenario is when the lettuce is attacked at the base and a slimy, yellowish orange-brown rot forms, which can the kill the entire plant.
A quick-spreading grey mould appears on lettuce leaves, which renders them inedible. If the fungus strikes at the base of the plant, it turns yellowish-brown and becomes a slimy rot.
