is it too late?

i'm not sure if these are past the point of saving.even the new growth has brown spots .from what i've been reading i should cut the brown from the older leaves and seal it with cinnamon extract.but i'm not sure what to do about the brown on the pbulb or the new growth any suggestions? thanks

The brown area on the older pbulb appears to be mechanical damage to me. As long as it's not soft...don't worry about it...it should callous over and be fine.

The new growth...that just looks like the sheath that is browning and if so...it's quite normal.

Personally, I don't see anything you should be concerned about.

I too don't see much cause for concern though I do think i would 1) give ti a good spray all over with a good fungicide and 2) increase the air circulation around the plant.

I'm starting to get a little concerned in that this is the 2nd or 3rd time in the last few weeks someone has some on the forum and said they heard you should cut brown spots off. My concern is that you and other people are getting bad advice from somewhere. Cutting is not the solution to every problem. Sometimes "brown spots" are completely innocuous, sometimes they can lead to problems if untreated but the treatment can be as simple as a spray of fungicide and better air flow.
