    i think my sarr has root rot what does it look like?
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    Well, some rot traits are:

    blackening, soggy leaves
    soggy soil
    non-crisp, soggy roots

    So, basically, the key word is "soggy" LOL! Here's the clearest description of root rot...

    Okay, ALOT of water goes into the soil. It bombards the air spaces in the soil, forcing the oxygen out. Without oxygen for the roots, the plants actually drowns and dies.

    If you think your plant has root-rot, just let it drain a little, but DON'T let it get dry. Just let it dry until it is just moist. Then water it a little less, say, only keep a fourth of an inch in the water tray.

    Hope this helps!

    Basically, by the time you notice the plant has root rot, it's too late. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
