Hello everyone

so I just transplanted a fairly healthy young plant into her final home. She was in a bamboo pot which snapped while I was trying to loosen the roots causing part of the pot and my thumb to basically stab the roots quite forcefully. Wondered if anyone could offer advice on how to save her?

@southwestsmoker

a repot and a week to recover should do her good... roots can be pruned same as shoots / branches on a plant so she will be ok for sure if you've only lost 10-15%

You could also give her a tonic if you have one (root juice/ superthrive / seaweed / biosys or similar) thats suitable for your medium....but not essential as time will heal all

good luck bro hope she makes a good come back for ya
