    Hi,
    About 3 months ago I noticed my Thai constellation had developed severe root all the roots, aerial nodes were lost and part of the stem. I am thrilled she has began growing new roots. However, I’m concerned that the new leave which should emerge from the petiole was also damaged with root rot. If a new leaf doesn’t successfully shot from the only leaf with a petiole will it ever grow new leaves. Your opinions would be greatly appreciated

    Spraying the roots (and whole plant) in a solution of water and 15 to 20% household bleach, then rinsing that off and planting might be helpful in getting rid of the pathogen.
