Why has my Old Man of Mexico gone black on the top ?!?




If the top is rotted but the roots are all right, just cut the top bit off with a sharp knife. Allowed the cut to dry in a place with good air circulation - you could give it a dusting of Flowers of Sulphur.

I'll upload a photo of one that I did a few years ago, for you to see it growing back.

I don't know why it would have rotted. It could be over watering, or maybe frost damage.
