same plant after a week (dated 11th April 2018)
Here is some fibrous cocoon kind of structure on the stem. Not able to make out what it is. After a week the whole plant has dried up with only the lower portion of the stem showing signs of life.
What disease is this on my nutmeg plants and what is the way to save this plant?
