Scabby Lesion Question


Hi Cactus Jungle crew,
I just noticed a dry scabby lesion on a Copiapoa hypogaea of mine (see attached photo). I’ve sprayed it down with neem oil, but are there any additional steps I should take?

Thanks,
Tony

Tony,

If the infection has scarred to “firm and crusty” the Neem should be enough to deal with it. If it is still moist and gooey it might help to clean it with 3% Hydrogen peroxide a few days apart and then retreat with Neem. The peroxide will help seal the damaged tissue as well as kill off the infection.
Take care,

Hap
