Potted annona root rot
« on: September 16, 2020, 04:20:33 PM »
So I was going to repot my sugar apple then found out that half the roots were dead...Every winter I noticed that it died back and then regrew the next spring...Is there anything to stop this? Is my soil to wet? Even though half its roots are dead it always fruits... The root ball is about 1.5 feet diameter and half the roots were dead even though it was in a pot for 5 years...

Too wet would be my first guess.
Cut back on watering the plant over winter.
I know it is hard to see your plant looking like it needs a drink and you not giving it that drink but its dormant and not using much so let the pot dry out more than you would in spring or summer.

Yeah it is probably too much water. Thanks!

The side of pot that get full sun get too hot.
Roots on the hot haft die.
