Anthracnose - A Fungal Disease of Shade Trees
  Anthracnose - A Fungal Disease of Shade Trees March 14, 2009
Plant disease of warm humid areas, caused by a fungus (usually Colletotrichum or Gloeosporium). It infects various plants, from trees to grasses. Symptoms include sunken spots of various colours in leaves, stems, fruits, or flowers, often leading to wilting and dying of tissues. Dogwood anthracnose, caused by the fungus Discula destructiva, thrives in cool climates; in the U.S. it has caused severe losses to natural stands of dogwoods in mountainous regions. It is controlled by destroying diseas Anthracnose - A Fungal Disease of Shade Trees

Phomopsis Tip Blight of Juniper
  Phomopsis Tip Blight of Juniper March 14, 2009
For most people, the first symptom noticed in the spring (early summer) is the die-back of the new shoot growth (tip blight). The new growth changes from light yellow green to red brown to ash gray as it dies from this fungal disease. Phomopsis juniperovora only kills the new growth - if more than just the new growth is killed, other fungal diseases or environmental injury is involved. Infection starts on immature scale leaves or needles, whereas mature needles are resistant. This infection prog Phomopsis Tip Blight of Juniper

Camellia Leaf Gall
  Camellia Leaf Gall March 18, 2009
The disease is caused by the fungus Exobasidium camelliae. The severity of the disease varies according to the weather conditions when leaf expansion begins in the spring. Cool, moist weather favors disease development. Frequently overhead sprinkler irrigation provides the moisture necessary for disease development. The fungus survives during the winter in leaf buds and infects the developing leaf tissue. Instead of developing normally, the new leaves become thickened and succulent and may b Camellia Leaf Gall

Cedar-Apple and Quince Rusts
  Cedar-Apple and Quince Rusts March 18, 2009
Cedar-apple rust and quince rust affect two groups of vastly utilized landscape plants. The cedar-apple rust fungus overwinters in galls that may grow to several inches in diameter on eastern red cedar and several other junipers. In the spring, brightly-colored, gelatinous horns emerge from the galls during wet weather. These horns consist of masses of spores that are spread by wind to newly-emerging apple, crabapple, and hawthorn leaves and fruit.

  Brown Patch March 18, 2009
Rhizoctonia solani (teleomorph: Thanatephorus cucumeris) is a plant pathogenic fungus with a wide host range and worldwide distribution. It is one cause of the condition known as damping off, which is a cause of death of seedlings in agriculture. It is also responsible for wire stem, a disease of cabbage, cauliflower and related plants that is similar to damping-off but attacks older seedlings and produces a constricted, wiry stem.

Tobacco Mosaic Virus
  Tobacco Mosaic Virus March 26, 2009
When Tobacco Mosaic Virus infects a tobacco plant, the virus enters mechanically (For example through a ruptured plant cell wall) and replicates. After its multiplication, it enters the neighboring cells through plasmodesmata. For its smooth entry, Tobacco Mosaic Virus produces a 30,000 dalton protein called P30 which tends to enlarge the plasmodesmata. TMV most likely moves from cell-to-cell as a complex of the RNA, P30, and replicase proteins. The first symptom of this virus disea Tobacco Mosaic Virus

Honey fungus or Armillaria is a genus of parasitic fungi that live on trees and woody shrubs. It includes about 10 species formerly lumped together as A. mellea. Armillaria is long lived and form some of the largest living organisms in the world. The largest single organism (of the species Armillaria ostoyae) covers more than 3.4 square miles (8.9 km²) and is thousands of years old. Some species of Armillaria are bioluminescent and may be responsible for the phenomena known as foxfire and White rot root disease - Honey fungus or Armillaria

Early blight
  Early blight April 24, 2009
Alternaria solani is a fungal pathogen, producing a disease in tomato and potato plants called early blight. It produces small, darkened lesions on the plants, that spread into growing black spots of dead tissue, often killing most of the plant in the long run. Seeds infected with the disease may even damp off during germination. This disease can be prevented with some fungicides, including azoxystrobin, potassium bicarbonate, hydrogen dioxide as well as the biological control agent Bacillus Early blight

My yellow straight neck squash plant has been healthy and producing. Today when I examined my garden this plant was wilted and curled with these huge ugly fungus growths all over the base of the plant. I do not know what this is or where it came from, I planted this garden 8 weeks ago and have had no problems.
