My poor Basjoo's. Somebody Help!!!!
I've done everything I can think of to kill these wonderful plants (not on purpose) and may have finally succeeded.
They froze bad and I lost all of them but this one.
The only one I have left is down to a major pile of roots (some a tan color and some dark) and a little bit of what was once a wonderful corm.
I've placed it in a pot in a warm sunny spot and sure enough, a little stem (looks more like a root) comes up from below and then dies off once it gets about an 1/8 of an inch above the soil.
I tried moving it outside and it did the same thing with the little stem/root from the side and then dies off.
I now have just about given up but when I look at what I percieve to be healthy roots, I can't give up on it.
Silly question but can I soak it in some water and treat it like a seed that I'm trying to start? Any other out of the box ideas? I dont want to give up on it cause it was so beautiful and I'm just sick.
