That is a pretty pathetic cutting! Herrenhauser Garten always had very corky bark as the wood matured. I've seen injuries do that also. When I had a power outage late January, those damaged branches that survived developed that look. Fred is very good at diagnosing problems. Maybe he can chime in and tell you if that could endanger you collection. At the very least, I would isolate the cutting.

I think no one should send such a thing if you want to chance it ok as far as I am concerned nothing is worth the risk

You need to let whoever send that cutting know that she/he shoudn't send those again to anyone. If it carries that dreadful SB it can easily wipe out an entire collections.

Personally that does not look looks like a cutting from a branch that is transitional...becoming corky...SB looks much more menacing...dark and infective looking...some plants like pink smitty, or peanut get that corky look but not dark or infective. When you see stem blight it is usually obvious...this cutting to me just looks transitional...but i would isolate it if you have doubts and watch it closely...personally from experience, i think it's just getting ready to transition to a corky phase...there is no blackening or darkening as far as i can see...looks more like injury than infection...but when in doubt...ISOLATE!!!

I agree with you, there are a lot of new brug growers and they have no idea how fast they can be infected using the same cutters without putting them in some salution befor cutting another one, I always had a dish of bleach and water and laid the clippers in it after every cut, even on the same plant.
