Hi there,

A couple of days ago I pruned my adenium plant.

After pruning the stems have started to rot(maybe).

Do I need to apply any anti-fungal or anti-rot medication
on the stems immediately after pruning ?
If yes, then what are the precautions that should be
taken while pruning ?

Thanks.

This is not a silly question, of course. :) I'm not an expert, probably, but I also cut off my adeniums. I do not process the cutoff, the branch dries up by itself.
Never rot.
I cut the branches differently. Not all at the same time.
I cut the old branches one at a time. I look where the plant has the kidneys. And I'm doing a cut on this place. Then I wait, when there will be new young branches. And after that I cut off another branch. I suppose that the plant must have a balance between the roots and the crown. Especially if you have a hot climate. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think your plant withers because of improper pruning, but not because have not processed the cutting site.

Thank you @Larisa for the reply.

I have heard of people applying some anti-rot solution(maybe cardamon or cinnamon powder)
on the pruned area of the stems immediately after pruning.

I would really appreciate if somebody shares some concrete information about this.

Thanks.

Sometimes I buy phalaenopsis on sale. Not because of the small price, I just regret the plant. Such orchids can have small rotten injuries. In these cases I use cinnamon powder. I just clean the damaged area and put the powder in place of the cut on the plant.
Cinnamon is a natural remedy for mushroom diseases and prevention. But with severe damage it will not help.
