I noticed last night 3/15 that the Hawthornia has developed aerial roots and also it looks like it is developing new leaves at the base of leaves near the aerial roots.
I read that is a sign that it is not getting enough water. I read to give it 1/4 cup water every two weeks. I had been giving it 6 T which is more like a 1/2 cup of water. I got confused due to the time change and watered it early and gave it twice as much water (12 T) than I normally use. The water all ran out and then was absorbed.
Any advice on what to do about the aerial roots?
