Water roots to Soil, Semi Rot
Hi, I am new to this forum and pretty new to home gardening.
i received an umbrella tree cutting rooted in water from my mom's big plant. i'm not sure how long she had it in water but the roots seem very developed.
i think i overwatered it and the roots began to smell and the plant to droop.
i immediately rinsed the roots and put only a small amount of water at the bottom.
the question: I want to repot it in soil so i can grow it big and strong. what is the best way to do this since the water roots are already very developed and it had a semi-rot? i bought a bag of perlite and i have some potting soil. should i use a big pot or should i root bound it in a smaller one at first?
i really want to repot this asap because it's not doing well. :( thanks in advance for your help!
