After the root of the money tree decays, it needs to be treated at the first time, so the plant should be taken out of the pot immediately.Before taking off the pot, you need to loosen the soil properly, do not pull it out forcibly, otherwise the damage to the root will be greater.Take it out carefully, put it in a basin filled with water, wash away the soil adhered to the roots, so that the roots are completely exposed.
The money tree can be pruned after the root is washed.Before pruning, you should disinfect the scissors, soak them in potassium permanganate solution, and take them out after a few minutes.Use sterilized scissors to cut off all the rotten roots and apply plant ash on them to prevent wound infection.Then put it in the shade and let it dry slowly.
After pruning the roots of the money tree, it is necessary to prepare a pot. Before that, it is necessary to prepare a new pot soil. The old soil cannot be used again, so as not to cause decay again.The new soil may be a mixture of peat, perlite and river sand in a ratio of 3:1:1.This ensures good drainage and does not adversely affect new root development in the soil.
Wait until the wound on the money tree is dry, and then you can prepare the pot.Pick a pot of the right size, place the plant upright in it and fill it with soil.Do not water immediately after potting, and avoid direct light, until the plant resumes growth, you can carry out normal maintenance.
