    The center growth appears to be getting progressively worse, and things are looking pretty grim. If it has the potential to pull a Lazarus and come back from the roots completely though, then I'll just let it be.

    Is there a rough time frame from when you can tell if the plant is completely dead after the growth croaks? I don't if the roots end up dying as well, I'll have no way of knowing without digging around, and I don't want to risk killing them in case they're not. On the same token, I also don't want to have rotting plant roots in there if its truely gone towards the light.
    Some random words.

    adelae's just do that sometimes. when mine did that, i tore apart three large plants, used every leaf that has some green still on it for cutting, i used the roots for cuttings, then i cut off the crows and used the stem for a cutting. now i have hundreds of buds.

    ime, roots produce plants faster than leaves

    D. adelae comes back fairly easily from the roots. If your plant dies, continue treating it the same as if it were still alive, keeping it wet. Give it some time and in a few weeks you should see some new growth coming up. People throw out dead plants too quickly and don't realize many regenerate from the roots.

    Good luck!

    I can vouch for that! Even though I thought I was being patient with it, I tossed it. I can kick myself for that! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    Alrighty, I'll the advice in mind guys. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Looks like its going to die all the way to the soil. :\

    Should I chop off the bits that I know are 100% dead, or leave it be?
