I am having trouble taking this plant out to examine the roots. I have used some technique to take it out but it is not helping much. I watered it with at least a litre of water and let it be for 30 minutes so the soil softens up. The water quickly drained and the soil is now completely wet. When I tried to scrape the soil from the edges, the roots were damaged while scraping. The roots are all red and hollow and very soft. When I broke it, I found a very thin white root(or whatever.) Here is the pic(can upload more pics if required):

  • Small roots are soft. Bigger ones get tough. Are they soft to the point of being soggy and waek? What size are we looking at here? Some roots are naturally reddish. Aug 2, 2016 at 15:28
  • @WayfaringStranger I took the big red one, broke it, and found it was hollow with a very thin thread like root. I will try a pic tomorrow.
