I noticed that my dwarf Alberta has been declining in health, so I decided that I’d move it up on my potting schedule. When I dug into it u found that the type of soil it was in was just holding moisture. I knew it didn’t need much watering, but I didn’t know how bad it was. Any roots below a few inches from the soil line in the interior were pretty black and rotten. All the best roots were on the edges.
I underestimated the size I’d need for the pot too, but my next biggest size was way too big. I’ll be keeping a close eye on this one. I also need to clean up the poor job I did on the jin.
