if anyone knows what this is I would appreciate them telling me [dunno] , I have this reddish brown looking corrosion on the soil of my Gardenia, I swear it looks like rusty corrosion. does anyone know what this is?? I thought it was some kind of mold or something, but its not, its nearly granular.

Thanks!!!

Sounds like you have a LOT of iron in your water and you are experiencing iron buildup... just a guess?? [dunno]

hi ninni,

Tricia is right,try if you can ,to take a little sample of that soil and have it analyse at your garden center,think they ve got the facilities to do so. or if you want buy one of those kit they sell so you can analyze it youself,i think they got those at any wallmart.

good luck!! Bonne chance!! [flower] [flower] [wayey]

Thanks for the idea's, I told my mom the same thing, It seems to be too much iron, and iron rusts! So say there is too much Iron, what do you do about that?

Thanks!!! [Smile]
