I am desperate for some good advice please. Three of my favorite houseplants are suffering terribly. My Bunny Ears cactus, Hens & Chicks cactus, as well as my snake plant are all affected.
I’m in Ohio, and I just brought all my houseplants back inside for the season. That’s when I noticed how affected they are. There seems to be a white, powdery substance near the root on a couple of sections, but other than that, I don’t see anything abnormal. It’s just like the roots are dying from the inside out. For instance, the Hen& Chicks, all the offshoots that connect the main plant, are just black inside. The snake plant, which is the only one of the 3 that’s not a succulent or cactus, seems to have just had its roots disappear. The above ground part of the plant, is just laying on the dirt, or appears to be still standing, as it leans on the other rootless part. The plants are all in their own planters. And I’ve had the snake plant for nearly 10 years and the cactus several as well. Everywhere I look online I see different answers.
