All of the stalks have died.
Hello. I would suggest bringing a specimen to your local corporative extension MG help desk. The master gardeners could have a look. These offices are manned by volunteer master gardeners on site there waiting to answer the communities questions that know your local situation quite well. They would be able to diagnose that for you or if unable to determine the problem -a specimen could be sent to the local university for examination and diagnosis.
Our local rural cooperative extension has office hours one day a week —if you’re in a more urban setting hours could be more substantial.
Master gardeners are required to volunteer back designated hours
( plus continuing education) each year to maintain MG certification -this community outreach and education is their goal. They are advice would be very valuable — they know your local situation well.
Thank you. I'm 85 and stay pretty close to home. This happened once before and I "stabbed" the bulbs/roots with a butcher knife and reawakened it.Kinda laborious. Just wondered if there was another way.
As a help desk volunteer -It might be hard to exactly determine exact problem without visual examination and all detailed considerations ( to include age of plant, examination of leaves, looking for bugs or evidence of disease, plant size, weather exposure, weather conditions,watering and feeding. A call to the local cooperative extension might be helpful with the active communication offered with the agent there.
I am not familiar with this plant with personal experience, but my first instinct would be to do this Site: edu search below—-perhaps some of these links might be helpful for you to review.
Best wishes with your plant I hope you find the perfect solution to restore its vitality. Happy gardening!
