I had a very healthy pot of Cephalotus growing in richly colored sphagnum
moss. This plant had flourished for several years. I noticed some white
fungus growing on a part of it last year. Removed it and some of the moss.
Two days later the whole plant was dead and the fungus had come back. Maybe
I should have used a fungicide, but most likely it was too late. I was
reluctant to use fungicide as it seems to kill off sphagnum as well.
I would use a fungicide pronto. I've heard this is a rather common with
Cephalotus? I'm guessing the environment that created it was stagnant air.
