    Default Den Out Of Bag

    Took the Den out of it's bag yesterday because I saw a leaf was dying. Checking on it, I found a new cane growing. Should I repot it and check the roots? Should I just water it and put it back in the bag?

    If it has any good roots I would pot it up , keeping them wet for a long period of time will rot them . It has reserves in the cane and should be ok potted . Keep it out of direct light for awhile . Hope this helps a little . Gin

    Yeah, you can pot it and be really careful about watering the right amount. To relieve stress you can raise the humidity (such as putting the whole plant and pot in a bag that's well aerated). Don't let water touch the new growth--it's delicate and can rot easily. Well, good luck!
