View Full Version : weird orange things on bramble
07-26-2008, 02:39 PM
Today I was cutting some bramble and on the underside of some of its leaves there was orange dots in clusters. Could these be eggs or fungi or something else?:confused: Heres a pic I took of it below.
I've finally found out how to upload pics properly!

at this time of year bramble is especialy prone to fungal diseases, which are caused by dry air/soil, and lack of air flow around the plants, ideal places for fungi to strike.
its to irregular in shape to be a egg mass...
nothing to worry about in any case, i oftne feed bramble to my phasmids that has various fungi growing on it, dosent seem to cause any harm to the insects themselves.

thanks. My sticks don't seem to mind it and are still eating the bramble
I've seen this on the bramble I collect, and also came to the conclusion it was fungal. Bramble has a habit of attracting lots of different fungal "things".

Yeh, I give my sticks brambles with the orange fungi on it all the time. When I recieved my sticks from Virginia Cheeseman who is a high rated breeder, the brambles in their tub were covered in them.
Well if VC has no problems - then it should certainly be fine :)
