    Your plant will yellow from the bottom up and be very droopy.

    root rot in soil? ...hmmm. not saying it's not possible, but i thought the "rot" was attributed to non-beneficial bacteria and fungus. i would think, for the most part, micro-orgs and the soil itself would help to protect against it. i would be more worried about root binding in soil.

    ...if you're watering too much, i could see root rot might happen. to fix, transplant into new/bigger container 2x bigger than current container. use 1:1 ratio of perlite and the soil of your choice. pack lightly then transplant from old to new container.

    cut back your watering, if indoors to where you can stick your hole finger down in the soil and feel mostly dryness. the tip of your finger should feel damp, not wet or moist...this signifies when the plant is ready for some more water. outdoors, go 1/2finger to full finger <<<does that sound dirty? :hubba:



    hope this helps. post some pics, that may be able to help us more.

    o2 to the roots is the best way to combat root rot.



    peace,

    Why do you believe you have root rot? H2O2 is not going to help if you do not have good drainage...If your soil does not have good drainage and they are too large to transplant, you may be SOL. What did you do to amend the soil when these were originally planted?

    if they are in the ground, then most likely you do not have root rot, unless you planted in a bog?? :eek:

    ...binding shouldn't be a prob either for in-ground plants.


    h2o2 should really not be used on soil plants, there are beneficial micro-orgs and such that are in the soil that the h2o2 will kill or reduce, so that's not recommended.

    what's your problem? you really haven't even described it or even posted a pic.


    if i had to guess (without more info or seeing a pic) you have a nute prob...

    thnx CHOW
    im pretty sure its root rot
    the droopy leaves turned yellow (fan leaves)
    started from the bottom branch on the main stem
    now working its way up
    taking out another branch
    its not a nute problem
    i have 22 plants and they are doing just fine
    this one on the other hand kind of is in a basin
    its hard to explain but basically we had to make a squared off area
    made with the very sandy clay walls in our bed
    so im pretty sure theres too much water in its little area
    thnx for all the help
    and im not some n00b grower i know about micro organisms
    and i know tht they can be replaced.

    u guys are basically telling me i should let my plant die rather than try to save it.
    alli want to kno is wht mixture of h2o2 is ok.

    and all the plants whent without water yesterday
    everyone was fine except for the root rot branches
    even the plant with the rot was fine
    but the two braches affected got really really droopy

    start with 1% strength of h2o2...

    also, aquire a pitchfork...go around the plant in a 2-3ft radius (w/ plant in the middle) and poke holes in the ground. like i said o2 is your best friend when you have the rot. ...all you're really doing w/ the h2o2 is "injecting it" into the roots b/c the h2 will drop off.
