when i change the watter today i can smell something really bad so i took out the plants and near the bottom is black. what do i do?
Wash and bleach the container thoroughly. Place the plant (roots) in a bowl of water that has a small amount of bleach mixed with plenty of water. Rinse. Cut off any obviously dead and mushy roots. You can also put some hydrogen peroxide in the plant water when you refill it. If your container holds about a cup of water, use a tsp. or so of the peroxide.
The water should be changed regularly to avoid the smelly, anaerobic conditions.
my bamboo leaves are getting yellow and it's roots also smells bad and something like jelly is on the roost, i was wondering can i cut off the roots?
@Babakamini you can just do what rhizo_1 suggested.
Just confirming, rhizo_1, that's 1tsp 3% hydrogen peroxide right?
