Went to repot my Harlequin Pothos and found this tumor-like mass of roots!! 😱 Should I trim it off or leave it?
6ft to light, indirect
4” pot with drainage
Last watered 3 days ago
I would trim. Roots will grow back, untangled. 😉
Personally, I’d just trim. I usually trim my roots anyway and it won’t affect your plant in any way! You can also leave it if you’d like! 😌
Whaaa?? Looks weird!! But just trimming that small piece won’t hurt it!
Thanks y’all! I usually try to minimize trimming healthy roots to avoid transplant shock but I went ahead and gave this one the snip… I mean, I can’t even be sure something so convoluted functions correctly, lol!
