lost roots

Postby jessr » Wed May 30, 2012 3:03 pm

Just want to confirm ..
Yesterday when re-arranging in the sunroom to take things outside I discovered that my Parodia scopa that I got for christmas has lost it's roots. Should I just leave it dry and out of a pot in a shady spot until I see roots starting to form and then pot it in a dry mix? I haven't had anything lose roots before.

thanks!

yes you can do that, you can also already pot it up dry, just wait with watering until you see new roots forming
