Q.Need Urgent Help For Ponytail Palm In Critical Health Condition

Zone Kushtia, Bangladesh | Momshad added on August 13, 2023 | Answered

I had asked for your help for my ponytail palm. So i’ve repotted my plant today with succulant/cactus soil, a little amount ash and perlite mix. But while repotting all the existing root got detached from the bottom and all the roots seemed to be rotten. Even the bottom sponge seemed to be brown. What should I do now? Should I cut all the brown sponge and then repot or repot it as it is now??

The sponge has some white roots in it so it looks good. You can trim off any more dead roots you see. Go ahead and continue repotting without the dead roots that detached. After it is assembled, wait a couple weeks before watering.
