Roots enveloped in black substance upon arrival -

Post by Valve » Tue May 10, 2011 3:28 pm

Hello all. I ordered a tissue sample via the interweb and i believe it got caught in the mail over the weekend giving it a total of 7 days from order time to my place. :disappointed: The plant arrived very sick, all the leaves fallen off, but mostly green above root level with a few black spots. The roots looktan, and half soft and are enveloped in a hard black/dark brown substance that cant be removed without removing all of the roots, i don't know what this is and i don't know what the best action to take is. Its currently potted leafless and in a home made humidity tent. Could really use some advice as i have no idea what i'm doing, thanks a lot!
