Last night I noticed my Drimiopsis was looking a bit droopy. *I suspect I accidentally watered it.


Considering the normal habitat, probably too much moisture.

There was a new leaf in mid August.

That leaf felt like the plant had been over watered. I removed the new leaf to prevent the possibility of rot.

Last night I removed the plant from its terra cotta pot and wrapped the roots in soft tissue.

The roots were not near the bottom of the pot, but pretty sure too much moisture is the problem.

*I have the plants without saucers on wire racks. For some reason I had moved the Drimiopsis to one of the second shelves.

Thinking maybe there was drainage from a plant above.

The possible good news is the bulb is still firm.
