Existing Bonsai A To Z Entry for Root Rot

Root Rot

Root Rot - Bonsai Pests and Diseases Bonsai Care

This occurs where too much water or fertilizer is applied, or the wrong soil mix is used, or where roots have dried out then rotted when water is applied. Treatment is to remove all dead root, dip in Benomyl or Orthocid solution and repot in new soil. Spray rather than water initially, keep out of drying wind and only apply fertilizer once new roots have had chance to form.
