Planted this guy in mid-march and have had him on a heated plate inside when it's cool and outside when it's warm. Have been watering only when the soil seems completely dry. It was doing a whole lot of nothing until i spotted this split a few days ago. It seems to be getting bigger and is starting to wrinkle at the top of the opening.
I don't know what to do about it, or what it means. Can anyone help?

Welcome! Welcome!
How does the cutting feel? Is it firm the entire length?
I was taught after the first good soak, not to water a cutting until it starts to show leaves to prevent rot. A soft cutting would indicate rotting.

I'm a little concerned at the brownish spot where that split is (also it appears to be brown right above the soil). I would take a pin and stick it around that area to see if milky white sap appears. If the sap is brownish, it probably means it's rotting..... Sad
Let us know!
