Miscellaneous diseases and disorders

Miscellaneous diseases and disorders
Bleaching necrosis

Air pollutant injury from either chlorides (> 0.5 ppm), nitrogen dioxide (> 2-3 ppm) or sulfur dioxide (> 0.5 ppm)
Bract necrosis

Physiological disorder favored by high humidity, heavy watering and high (ammoniacal) fertility rates in the last 4 weeks of production

Nitrogen deficiency producing a general foliar yellowing
Molybdenum deficiency affecting mature young leaves and producing upward leaf roll
Sulfur deficiency causing young leaf yellowing
Zinc deficiency producing general yellowing and stunting of new leaves
Cyathia drop

Response to low light conditions, dryness and/or high temperatures at the end of the production cycle
Dropping (epinasty)

Ethylene toxicity (< 1 ppm) or low temperature chilling

Interveinal chlorosis

Magnesium deficiency, initiating on older leaves
Manganese deficiency, initiating on young mature leaves
Ammonium toxicity produces V-shaped chlorotic bands starting at the leaf tip and accompanied by downward leaf cupping
Latex eruption

High internal turgor pressure associated with certain cultivars, high humidity, high moisture availability, low temperatures and/or mechanical abrasion
Leaf glazing (bronzing)

Peroxyacetyl nitrate (PAN) injury to the lower epidermis (> 0.2 ppm)
Marginal necrosis

Potassium deficiency Fluoride toxicity on tips and margins of young leaves and bracts (0.4 ppm in water)
Lithium toxicity on older leaves (2 ppm)
Stem splitting

Physiological expression of flower initiation

Ozone injury (> 4 ppm)
Terminal shoot necrosis

Excessive soluble salts (> 800 EC X 102)
White bract

Chilling injury occurring between 0-10°C (32-50°F)
