|I posted earlier this week about possible rot of my indoor blue chalk sticks. I noticed some of the stems were turning brown/black and mushy. Please see the attached picture. I removed the rotted stems and cut them off and then reinserted the remaining bit into the soil.
I think the problem is I repotted the plant in a much too large pot which didn't have good drainage which caused the rot. I also noticed a good number of what I think are fungus gnats flying around.
What's the best way for me to save this plant? Thanks

|I would remove & propagate the tops, use an unglazed clay pot in the future, and a different kind of soil without any peat in it. If roots are rotting, gnats would be attracted to that source of food, and they just naturally thrive in peat anyway.

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.
