Hey Neo Folks

I have a Neo Rosy Morn which has produced a pair of pups about 6 months ago and they are going great guns.  The second set of pups have produced over the last 6 months and whilst the mother plant is declining.  What would cause the new pups to end up like this....

Sick Neo. Rosy Morn Pups

It's in a good semi-shady spot no different from the placement since the first pups were removed.  Could it just be that it tried to grow pups during the winter (I am just north of Brisbane, QLD, Australia).

Here is a shot of one of the original pups.

Gordon,
Looks to me they have a fungus infection.  They may have got it from the mother.  As the mother ages after flowering the centre where the flower is can be awful and it is possible the fungus started there.  With my mothers every now and then i give them a bit of a blast with the hose to flush out the well.  The pup on the right looks like it has gone but you may be able to save the other.  Hit it with some fungicide and the mother if you want more pups.

Gordon I had a simular situation with Rosy Morn and also Red Macaw. The first batch of pups were perfect but the second slower growing batch rotted from the centre out. Your original pup looks to be going great guns.

Thanks for the information guys, I will let the old Rosy mother do as it pleases I have a large circular garden in the back corner of the yard full of 'Old Mothers' where I leave the dead and the dying to pup as they like.  Sounds like I need to pay it a bit more attention!  I have two good pups from that plant so far and if these next two don't shape up I will remove them and give the mother a fungicide treatment.

Regards
Gordon.
