Right, italophile, since you were curious about my Sungold with stem rot...
As per the photos earlier in the thread, above this point on the stem, the plant actually looked healthy - but it had clearly stopped growing and was noticeably smaller than all my other plants.
I realised that the soil was staying wet too - i.e. the roots just didn't seem to be absorbing anything when watering.
Anyway, have chucked the plant. Do you think I need to chuck the pot too - could it be one of those fungi that supposedly can survive winter etc? Mind you, I never got round to isolating this plant and the others all look ok *tempting fate*
