is this rot?
    #26856736 - 08/01/20 07:02 AM (10 days, 13 hours ago)

about 2-3 weeks ago my trichocereus was knocked off the side (not by me!) while it was just starting to throw roots.
one of the roots was broken off but there was another long root that looked undamaged and healthy, as did the other beginings of roots that were starting to show. i repotted it in the same, dry soil and put some scaffolding around it. i have not watered it at all, before or after the accident.

today i pulled him out the soil to see how the roots are doing and i saw the image below.
the one good long root is gone and there is a black mark that looks like rot.

is it possible this is damage from the fall and not actually rot? it has not been watered at all. can a fall cause rot?
i am worried about making a fresh cut and starting again because the cold weather will be creeping in very soon here (UK). it is also quite shrivelled already because it has used a lot of resources throwing roots, twice!



thank you very much for the help <3

It looks kind of like rot but could be damage from a fall. Is it soft?

thanks for the reply.
it is not soft, it feels as firm as the rest of the cactus i would say.

today a lot of the black actually seems to have gone and it has shriveled slightly. it looks very promising to me!
looks to me like it might just be a "bruise" and it will heal okay.

i feel like the right thing to do might be to keep it out of the pot for a few more days for it to heal properly, then get it back in and hope it roots in time for a small drink before going into dormancy.
does that sound like the right thing to do?

here is what it looks like today:

Yeah, better watch it for a couple more days like a week or two.
If it doesn't get bigger nor gets soft or squeezy then it should be okay and you can plant it as usual.

thank you so much guys! <3

i will keep it out and keep an eye on it.

would you say those roots would have been enough to start watering? im hoping once its healed (fingers crossed it does soon) i can get it potted and watered before it goes dormant. i am expecting temperatures to drop to dormant levels around september/october. if it is good to water i think i will still have time to give him a couple of drinks before having to reduce to none. i dont want him to be thirsty all winter :smile: i think it is probably too late for a feed though, but he should be fine without it for now.

thanks for the help <3

Those nubs would be enough for me to throw the plant some water every so often. I don't usually pull up cuttings unless there are several of them and I use one as a test subject. If it doesn't pull easily from the dirt, I treat it like the rest of my plants.

thanks. if all goes well he should get his first drink soon then! :happyheart:

it was a difficult decision to pull it out of the soil. i read a lot of conflicting opinions about it but decided to do it (VERY CAREFULLY) because this is the first time i have rooted a cutting and i didnt really know what it should feel like yet.
im glad i did on this occasion though, it seems it might have helped it heal, unless it was a coincidence in timing.

today it looks even better. the black area is now shriveled and hard and the black colouring has pretty much gone. hes going to be okay!!!


thanks for the help <3
