Unfortunately, after speaking with a grower in Washington DC, who was kind enough to respond to my desperate Facebook messages it appears my suspicions regarding a fungus and root rot were correct. On their advice, I did have to remove it from the pot and disturbed the entire root ball. I have removed all of the roots in the ball of the plant is significantly smaller. I’m having a very hard time creating a well draining or fast draining soil. I mix my own soil and I’m particular about measurements. Can anyone tell me what to do here? What is the appropriate soil mixture recipe for this plant? I think you all so very much for your help.
