Cut all the rotten roots and leave the tree with a small amount of earth on the roots to dry. When all the earth is dry, put it back and water it less frequently. Before watering, check the dryness of the earth. To do this, dip your finger in the ground – if the ground is already dried out to a depth of one phalanx of a finger, you can pour a little. The lack of irrigation leads to the appearance of dry brown spots on the leaves.
