pollen????

Post by cai williams » Wed Dec 29, 2010 11:49 am

Hello, i have just been stripping some fibre off my trachycarpus fortunei, when i noticed some small orange grains by the new growths, about a quarter of a millimetre across. Could this be pollen then? :?: :?: :?:

Cheers if you can chime in

Maybe orange spot fungus?

Photo?

If the Trachycarpus isn't flowering itself, it could always be pollen from something else of course, but Bob may well be right.

Yeah, i think you must be right, it is barely over 50 cms tall :(

Bob, while on the subject of fungi, i notice many white solid blobs on the lower petioles. do u think this could be something of interest :?: :?: :?:
