Hi Kim,

It looks like you have a case of stem rot, most likely caused by a Fusarium type fungus. Because it is on a common brug, I would toss the plant and sterilize any cutters that may come in contact with it.

Here's an article written by Delisa Harvey on stem rot that you may find helpful.

So I am confused. Are the dots on the stem the fungus or is the brouwnish scap the fungus? Or both?
