I started repotting and dividing my Sarrs today, which ended up being more work than it originally seemed.... Anyway, when I finally came to my leuco, I found that the "old" portion of the rhizome was soft and brown.
Here is a diagram I made:
I ended up cutting away the old portion and scraping off the soft brown tissue that slightly stretched into the opposite side which was branched in two. This forced me to divide the two ends. These two branches contain two very healthy growth points at the ends and one other growth point in between. The rhizome's tissue in this area was white, firm, and healthy.
Now to my questions: It is normal for the "old" portion of the rhizome to became soft and brown after some time? Do you guys think this was truly rhizome rot or normal aging?
Usually, the old end of my other Sarrs becomes darker, but does not become soft.
