Streps... Bad roots, need help fast...
I just got some new Strep's (07-03-07) and went to replant them (07-05-
07). They are young plants (2 1/2" pots, leaves 3 - 4") and the
leaves are pretty healthy still, but the root system is shot (size of
a finger tip). In a case like this, is it better to leave them be and
let them try to regrow or cut the leaves off (propogate them) and try
to regrow the stem? I guess the question is; do the leaves on streps
help in bringing back to life, or do they add extra stress to a bad
off plant and further it's demise? I've had a few transactions with
the grower and they stand behind their plants and will send
replacements as they become available. I just want to try and save
what I got if at all possible.
