Reds spots on pancratium

Agreed, depending on the climate, from my limited and mostly indoor
cultivation of about a dozen species for around 12 years. A steep learning
curve as I started with frost hardy cold temperate plants.

The Stagnospora rots the roots at the basal plate, and the neck of the
bulb, thus depriving it of both roots and leaves. Then any new leaf emerges
with black tips and red margins, the outer scales of the bulb then die and
rot........ given careful cultivation, minor infections disappear in a year
or less, without chemicals.
