hello again!!! i was the anon with the pachyveria hybrid ask. i unpotted it like you said and got as much of the soil off as i could. heres what it looks like

are the brown parts of the stem rot? corking? what am i looking at here? is it still salvageable?


The roots look okay, which is annoying – because the brown on the stem looks very much like the beginnings of stem rot. You could take a chance and leave the plant out in open air for a week or so and see if the brown spreads or not, or you can take the more cautious route and cut the stem above the brown area and re-root the plant.
