Recently repotted this monstera. Old and well established. Had been pretty happy prior to this, but was way outgrowing old pot. I mixed miracle gro (mistake) soil with permite and repotted into plastic pot (mistake 2).
All the roots are basically gone. 😭
Question now is do I repot the bases; they look kind of brown - got a terra cotta pot and cactus mix soil with more perlite to add.
Or do I cut bases and old mostly dead roots try to water propagate? If I do, should I cut them shorter? How much should I cut off?
The old canes are pretty long, maybe 2-4 feet. There's two more larger canes I'm about to dig up as well.
I'm heartbroken as she was doing so well before this and I should have really checked for rot sooner (repotted about 1 month ago)
I also did cut off four yellowed leaves. But unsure if I need to sacrifice more. Really at my wits end over this, but trying to be proactive as crying is not helping her.
I've looked through so many other posts, but most are younger plants with less growth and I am truly at a loss.
Have included photos of roots, one cane I've cut, and the largest cane to get an idea of where to cut if needed for water propagation. Really have no idea how long I can leave the cane and still grow roots - ideally wouldn't lose too much height but that's obviously the lesser concern at there moment vs the whole plant just dying.
Thanks In advance for any help!
