Q.bamboo palm (indoor) fungus in soil around roots

Zone Kansas City, Missouri | Sharalsonkc added on January 12, 2014 | Answered

I have a bamboo palm I replanted late summer. I noticed this evening that some of the fronds are not thriving. Upon closer inspection, the soil has a grayish blue fungus or mold in the root system. That area of the plant was very dry. I haven’t been watering the plant but even the area of moist soil is fine. What can I do to rid the fungus/mold and revive this section of clumps? I’m wondering if I should cut that particular clump out.

With this plant, cutting that clump out is an option. I would recommend trying to use a fungicide first. You can just drench the soil with it and that should clear up the fungus on the soil and plant.
