  Re: Philodendron aerial roots
From: Lester Kallus <lkallus at earthlink.net> on 1997.11.20 at 00:19:12(1638)
I've not had the root rot problem when burying air roots on anthuriums. I
have a clarinervium that after a few years grows a long stem with leaves at
the top. I've generally just dug it up, cut a few of the underground roots
back so that I could bury it deeper and then buried the plant to a higher
level. The newly-buried air roots have survived the burial, have grown,
and the plant continues to thrive. I presume, though, that with such a
hardy plant, only a blow torch or a deep freeze would kill it and that it's
suriving this trivial torture easily.
