    I think i will throw it into an LFS perlite mix, since that is all i have right now, and then get some peat soon. The plant is in really sad condition, could someone point me towards a thread that will help with repotting basics.

    Hi agunn

    Try this for starters, the important thing is to make sure the roots are spread out and there is good contact with the medium and always top water the first couple of times to settle the substrate onto teh roots.

    sarrs are tougher than you might think. i found a pot under the porch (i blame the cats) that was there for at least a month with no rain and it ended up recovering.

    it started to recover, but ended up rotting in all this rain we've had since it was already stressed and weak
