When a rotten condition occurs at the root, it can be completely saved, and if it is not saved immediately, it itself cannot be repaired. After rotting the root, remove it from the basin, remove the sticky soil, and cut off the rotten rhizome. Prepare potassium ferrate disinfection and new bonsai soil in advance, put it on the back of the disinfected plant and put it in a cool, ventilated place to wait for roots.

Can it be saved?

The magnolia can be saved after the rotting roots. Its growth and development ability is very good, but if it is to repair itself, the foundation is unlikely to be maintained. Therefore, when it is found that the root of the plant is rotten, it should be saved as soon as possible. After a series of rescues, we must also grasp the effective maintenance methods, give it a small amount of water in ordinary times, and pay attention to good ventilation, so as to avoid rotting roots again.

II. Salvage methods

1. Eliminate rotten roots: remove the plant from the basin and remove the sticky soil. If you can't see what rotten roots are, wash them with tap water. Use neat and sharp scissors to cut off the rotten roots. If the leaves and stems are rotten, they must be cut off.

2. Disinfection and sterilization: cutting the root can not immediately remove the basin, because there will be residual pathogens above, so it is necessary to disinfect it with potassium ferrate before putting it on the basin. Soak its roots in water, soak it for 10 minutes, and then dry it.

3. Pots and roots: prepare a new soil layer in advance again, and then plant the orchid in the future. At first, you should put it in a well-ventilated place, and you don't have to accept the sun first, so that it can grow roots quickly.
