Stinky cat palm
Just bought this cat palm a week or two ago. It is in one of those plastic pots where the drainage holes are like two inches from the bottom so water sits in there. The thing smells like rotten eggs. Yuck.
I removed the pots, suspecting rotting roots, but they are all healthy. In fact, the bottom, where the water sits, is completely clogged with roots. I guess it really likes water.
I would love, LOVE to rinse the potting mix (what is left of it) off this plant and repot it in a pot of similar size but better draining.
Trouble is, I know this palm really dislikes having its roots disturbed. What to do?
