squirrel chewed some roots

My plant on the balcony in a pot seems to have been disturbed. The plant is not uprooted but it seems like a few upper roots have been chewed through. Is this fatal for the plant (which otherwise is healthy, and just started to pup a month ago) and will the squirrel want to come back? thanks. Joe

Hi Joe,

Probably no big deal. If it eats out the crown, then you have trouble. Roots are no big deal for Clivias. They will produce more as long as the rest of the plant is healthy.
