    Bald Cypress Repot Root Rot Help!

    I had planned to re-pot my bald cypress when I was certain it was coming out of dormancy but as the clock continued to tick, just this evening after work, I slipped it from the pot for a quick look at the roots. Stink-o-rama black root rot layer about a half-inch thick (not pictured). I keep...

    Help to identify root rot

    Hello, I would like your thoughts on identifying root rot in my Ficus religiosa plant which is about two years old. Some cream-coloured roots are visible in the picture after the wash. They had some brownish-black layer covering which came off easily while running my fingers. The tree had...

    My Ikea Ginseng Ficus: An Autopsy

    My ginseng ficus, Clotilde, is dead. She was my first and I had her for over a year. Only recently I noticed all her new leaves had fallen off and when I went to investigate, her trunk felt water logged. The photos tell the story better. My partner says I can take the stems that have green nubs...

    Groundlayer trapped

    I started various groundlayers on JMs but the original soil remains too wet and I think this already killed my corallinum. How do I remove water from the bottom of the pots? Slice open and let a towel draw it out? Tall, cheap plastic pots (buckets)

    How to I heal root rot?

    Thank you to everyone who has helped me with the issue I’ve had in the last post. I have repotted the plant, and while doing so I noticed that my plant had root rots. I took out the rotten ones mostly, but then I noticed a black-brown spot on its thickest root, and I didn’t cut it since it...

    Science behind root rot

    Hello everyone. I am unable to understand the science behind rotting roots, from what I understand it's usually that the roots die because of too much water (i. e. Lack of oxygen) and then fungal pathogens corrode away that root and it can spread into the healthier sections as well. I stay in a...

    Dwarf mugo pine with root rot need advice

    I just got my first mugo pine a few days ago. I know you should repot in mid summer but I pulled the nursery pot off to try to remove the top layer of soil to try to see the trunk better. I found that the soil was soaking wet and a mucky mess. There is new roots growing but a lot of older roots...

    Is This Root Rot?

    We've had mental weather here in Sweden lately, with the temperatures going from -2 to +25c.. Most of my garden seems very confused as to what season it is, and my bonsai trees have been hit the worst. I've been trying to rule out what could possibly be wrong with this juniper. Is this root rot...

    Can a ficus get root rot?

    Yes. What it takes is a shallow pot, heavy soil allowed to remain for too long and overwatering. I purchased this one with hopes to resuscitate. It’s clearly in decline, having dropped most of its leaves since mid-summer. Scott

    A Little Issue (Root Rot)

    I have a little issue. Someone threw a really bad condition bonsai at me. It was in a really loamy, waterlogged soil. After pruning only bad roots, it left only 1/2 of the original root system (including pruning roughly 1/2 the feeders) because of severe root rot. I have bonsai experience...
