Q.I Repoted This Comfrey Plant And Saw Some Of The Roots Brown, Could This Be Root Rot?
Hello from Greece and Congratulations for the best ever gardening website. During repot of this beautiful comfrey plant i noticed some of the roots brown. Some people say it is the browning of the soil that made the roots look brown like that but i am very worried that this could be root rot.

It is common for roots to get stained. I wouldn't worry too much. If you are still concerned, you could give it a dusting of wettable sulfur.
Where you would be worried, would be if the roots were soft and squishy. This could indicate rot. Otherwise, everything looks pretty healthy, to me!
