have rot need roots- salvage advise -pics
I had a number of alocasia odora sprout from a cut trunk like this last summer, thx to the kind advise I got here. This piece did not sprout any and had some rot when I put it in the basement last fall. I figured when it dried externally in dormant storage the rot would halt and I would plant it out in optimum growing conditions (outside) next summer.
The rot continued however so recently I cut it out, gave it a bleach/water soak, dried it for days then gave it 2 coats of neem oil- garden safe product. then dried it a few more days before planting in potting mix. It turns out have 3 eyes sprouting.
It also turns out the rot continues to eat the inside of this trunk.
Should I recut and bleach water soak again- then pot up in something else?
My options are pine mulch, vermiculate, perlite, or crushed limestone gravel.
I'd like to save them if possible.
