Default Re: As if I wasn't having enough issues... HELP

This is the only thing which worries me... The first paragraph under "similar diseases" in the following link states:

"In the absence of other symptoms, the leaf symptoms of Xanthomonas wilt can be confused with those of Fusarium wilt. In plants affected by Fusarium, yellowing and wilting of the leaves typically progresses from the older to the younger leaves. The wilted leaves may also snap at the petiole and hang down the pseudostem. In plants affected by Xanthomonas, the wilting can begin with any leaf and the infected leaves tend to snap along the leaf blade."

Mine die, one by one from the oldest to youngest on most plants, and bend at the place where the petiole meets the stem. The difference being the small black male flower and discolored peduncle and the look of the leaves that are still green, having browned edges and frayed looking. (Which are not associated with Fusarium wilt.)

If you lose your head and give up, you neither live nor win.

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.
