Root Rot

If you have a plant that is suffering from root rot, all hope is not lost. Remove the plant from the soil and gently wash the roots in tepid water. Then, dip them in a glass with one to two teaspoons of anti-bacterial mouth wash and eight ounces of water to stop the root rot from spreading. Place the plants in clean, sterilized soil. Water them with tea made from flowering dogwood branches or willow branches. First you must kill the bacteria, then you need to promote regrowth. A light fertilizer will also help the roots re-establish.
