Default Re: How to stop root rot?

There is something in cinnamon (forgot?) that helps w/ plant owies. I learned this reading about orchids - when you cut a bad or rotting part off, rub the wound w/ cinnamon...a plant bandade.
Try to keep those stems dry to prevent damping off. Like I said, I water from the bottom...put container in water to absorb from bottom for roots. It works for me.
