    Thanks, Shaydra! Great article, and the pics help so much with good root/bad root ID.

    Thanks!! I went through and just randomly unpotted for a couple of additional pictures.

    I still can't believe there was a slug in my mini-phal right up next to the stem! All those black roots in the pic came off right after. Poor lil guy. At least it won't have that slug in there killing more roots! ... Ol' sluggy got salted and washed down my sink.

    Nice article....and on the little mini mark....I recently received a plant and was assured all was well. On accident I knocked it over and found a little slug attached to a root doing it's damage. Never trust a plant, check the roots. lol Gotta hate them slugs!

    Great article Shaydra. Also have problem with snails and slugs. Hot weather and rain seems to make them active
