I was repotting a couple of nep's today that I got from a friend. They were potted in pure sphagnum, and when I pulled them out, I was thrilled to see a nice rotten mess!
I wouldn't say the roots were rotten so much as the moss was, so I removed almost all the moss, unfortunately along with some of the roots. There are still a reasonable amount of good roots left.
I sprayed the roots with RO water and superthrive to remove the last of the brown ooze, then repotted in a mesh pot (thanks Swords) with *mostly coconut husk, as well as some perlite, charcoal, peat, and chopped sphag (thanks Tony). Then watered again with RO water and superethrive. *The growing point of one plant has dried up. Should I take a cutting of this plant, or leave it? I am aware, that at this point they both have a good chance of dying.
The question I have for you experts is.... Is there something I should water them with to sterilize/disinfect the roots, or something else I should do for them?
Thanks for the help,
