How to care for in the process of root rot

In the process of Phyllostachys heteroclada growth, if the water quality variation, fertilizer applied long roots is very easy to corrupt, it can also be caused by the low temperature in winter frostbite. Long time not to give the cutting process, also can make its roots rot, suffer harm from diseases and pests. Its roots will decay and the best will first roots rotted shall timely treatment, and need to change the water conservation, and measures need to be warm in winter.
