Hi, can anyone help? my dicksonia lost it's leaves as early as Jan. this year. The crown was packed with dry leaves for the winter. It now looks as if it has rotted in the middle, and has white stuff, like mould in a jam jar, growing on last year's cut off fronds. Is it dead or can it be saved? I read somewhere that you can cut off the rotten crown and hope for the best. If so how much should I cut off and how? will sugar and water help?
