How long does it take a plant to recover from root rot?
The good news is that most plants will bounce back between 7-14 days if they’re given proper care (which includes rehydration). If this isn’t possible because major damage was done or little healthy root system exists then expect about 2 weeks until improvement can be seen.
What does root rot look like?
Signs of root rot are slow growth, mushy stems, and wilting, yellow, distorted leaves (especially when the plant has been well watered, as wilting leaves can also be a sign of a dry plant). Usually the soil will smell rotten and the roots will appear to be reddish brown.
