Hello everybody,
in the past years we lost some ario cultivars because the rotting starts from the flower and brought it inside the plant.
Our weather is now quite cold in the evening and usually when retusus flower it's october/november.
Did anybody else have this problem?
And if yes how do you avoid it? cutting the petals or using a fan ventilator?

Hello, luckily for me I have never had this problem. Here to me perhaps the time is even more wet from you, I always leave that turns air without fans but by opening doors and windows, as long as the temperature allows, and if I can even a few hours in the middle of winter in the middle of the day. If they remain on the soles of flowers that have not hatched i remove them with pliers, remove the flowers that are faded and were not pollinated. I hope you solve the problem.
Carlo
