Have you tried an extended soak in Inocucor Garden Solution yet?

Unpot the plant, and submerge it over night in a 1:50 solution (5 tbsp/gal). You may be surprised.

No I haven’t! I’ll do it this evening!
The rest of my plants are definitely showing improvement after one application and a little over a week now, too!

The preventive "tonic" treatment is a 1:100 solution applied on a monthly basis, but if you are battling an active infection, a several-hour soak in a 1:50 solution is warranted, and I recommend daily mistings with that for about a week following, to reinforce the population of beneficial microorganisms in the plant.

I bought a $150 phalaenopsis clone once that brought erwinia with it. Erwinia is a bacterial infection that very rapidly "liquifies" the plant internally, killing it in a few days. The curative treatment I recommended stopped it cold.

That’s an intense infection! I did the overnight soak, and have been doing light waterings every other day.

Put a small amount of the solution in a spray bottle, and mist the plant whenever you walk by. That'll boost the population quickly.
