|A H. imperialis growing outside was looking horrible....so I dug it up and it really looked BAD! I cut off dead stuff, and planted it in orchidbark/perlite at a 45deg. angle...kept it damp...not wet. About a month later...this is what it looked like:
I trimmed off more dead root...and was careful to leave the fresh new roots in tact...repotted it up....
This is what totally dead root looks like... Really, nothing viable there!!!!
I'll carefully nurture this until it puts out new fresh growth and when I can, I'll cut it to root. I have a feeling that this old piece of root could croak at the slightest discomfort...but will be able to save it with the new growth.
Leap. The net will appear.
