Mother In Law's Tongue

Plant Is Dying

Pastel added on April 14, 2012 | Answered

I have a mother-in-law's tongue plant that we've had for years. It was getting too big for the pot that it was in and I repotted it last August. Now the leaves are all getting "mushy" at the bottom and I've decided to change the dirt to try and save it. There's hardly any root left at all! Is it too late to salvage any of it? Thanks.
