Advice neede for sick Christmas Cactus
About 30yrs ago I inherited a Christmas Cactus. Its lived happily in our dining room for the last 20yrs, however last year I accidentally managed to overwater it without realising.
The plant went all droopy, so I decided to repot it last October, thinking that that might perk it up, but when I took it out of the old pot, I realised it was far too wet, and parts of the stem were breaking due to rot (I assume).
I've put it in some new compost that said it was suitable for Cactus, a larger pot, and didn't water it for a number of weeks to let it dry out. Its condition didn't improve, so I gave it a small amount of baby bio (as this has made it look very healthy in the past), all to no avail.
As it is now dry, I've been watering it a small amount with plain water, however if anything it looks even more droopy now.
When I re-potted it, I planted one of the better looking brances that accidentaly came off, into a separate pot. However this looks exactly the same as the main plant.
As I've had if for such a long time I'd really like to save it. is there anything I can do, or does it sound like its on the way out? any advice, most welcome.
