My desert rose plant of 3yrs suffered a little from the freeze this past winter... When I up-potted it, I noticed some rotting areas on and under the gray base. It shows many new growths on the trunk. Can this plant be saved and what should I do to the rotted areas? Thank you.....Ruth

You should be able to cut off the damaged areas. Use a razor blade or sharp knife to remove the soft or mushy areas. Then replant in fresh potting soil.
