ASAP PLEASE !!!!I had a healthy Strawberry vanilla Paniculata, in a row with Quick fire and Pinky Winky. It accidentally got over watered. I waited a couple of days to see if it would recover, but it only got worse. now all the leaves, even the new ones that were comoing out at the stem are wilting . Unfortunately, it was in clay soils, amended some , But I watched carefully and did not over water, but others did.
Here is my Question. I removed the plant and removed the soil and amended with bark and compost to make a looser soil . I then watered only the top , some this evening . But I kept on reading here and Luis had posted that maybe the best thing would be to trim to darker roots on the bottom and repot it and wait until fall to replant.
should I do that ? it was originally about a 2-3 gallon large one and it has 3 foot stems.
Should I trim the drooping blooms off of the end - it was covered with blooms .
Should I put it into its original pot , after trimming the roots, and use the good soil I have ?
Should I use peat moss? I have read not to so so here as it robs moisture , but in a pot , maybe not as much.
should I trim off the leaves it is such a large plant and trimming the lower darker 3 inches of roots- it still has a lot of good ones , should I go ahead and trim some stems , or would it shock it too much ?
I have it in a row with PInky Winky and quick fire who are happy with sun and my care so far- this one just got too much water from a daughter who did not understand afternoon wilting .
please help . I am going to do this tomorrow , either take it out and cut off the bad roots and put it back into the new amended soil,
or cut them off and put in a pot, with or without trimming stems ( wonder if the stems require too much support with all the wilted leaves ?
Or should I just leave it like it is in the ground after replanting it into amended soil . I think I do need to trim the brown roots unless you can assure me the good ones will take over ?
What say ? i would appreciate so much saving this one . I had a friend bring it to me from Missouri.
also looking for Harmony Oakleaf. Any where in the metroplex? I am in greenville, Texas
