My plant had stem rot and I’m trying to save it
Earlier this week I asked around here for tips on saving my beautiful pink plant and a few of you guys told me to check for root rot. I took your advise only to notice that all the roots had deattached off the plant, the main stem was rotten and the plant was completely being sustained by the stick I put. I am now currently on complete save mode. I’m super sad to lose this plant since I’ve only had it for 1 week (I believe I may have already bought it sick). I just cut all the rot and used a bit of cinnamon on the cut. As it has no roots I’m thinking on put in on water to see if it can grow some as if I were trying to propagate it. In anyone has any tips that may help me in my journey I’ll be happy to receive them!! Thank you!!

Sorry to hear this! I have an aglaonema in water about 1 foot from a west window and it is starting to push our roots. It took a while but it is worth a try!
