|When your plant does this, you don't panic, you don't think. You just go in there, dig it out and start hacking it to pieces. Don't even bother thinking it over.|
Get in there with a sharp knife and cut off the obviously decomposing parts until healthy tissue is exposed. By "healthy", in this case, it means no discolouration.
|Nope, not enough, cut an inch more off of that trunk.|
|T. reticulatus are winter growers. But since they had to be unpotted going into their growing season, the exposed cuts were dipped in sulfur powder and then left out to dry somewhere cool and dry until spring.|
