What Is Root Rot?

While most people assume that root rot only happens to indoor potted plants, this isn’t actually the case. Even plants planted outside can experience root rot. Root rot, if not taken care of in a timely manner, can actually ruin and kill the whole plant. Therefore, once you begin to notice root rot, it’s time to get to work and fix it! Often, you may realize that your plants are experiencing root rot if they appear to be wilting, or if their leaves begin to turn yellow or brown. It’s impossible to diagnose root rot unless you look at the roots, which tends to result in having to dig in the soil around the plants to survey the roots underneath.

When you work with us, we do all this work for you! There is no one cure for root rot. However, as long as your plants are still in good condition, we can often still save the plants that are suffering from root rot. When we survey the roots of the plants suffering from root rot, we want to see healthy, white, strong roots. Brown, soft roots are bad — and are often the type of roots that appear when plants are suffering from root rot. If there are enough strong white roots, then we can trim the brown ones and get your plant back to normal!

Our Root Rot Treatments

Root rot can lead to diseased trees and plants, so it’s best to get this taken care of sooner, rather than later. Root rot is a result of plants that are not drained of water properly. As a result, water pools up at the bottom of the plant, or in the soil where the roots are. This makes the roots soft and results in root rot. Therefore, proper drainage is needed to save these plants. And we can help!
