I've had a fascicularia for a few years, no flowers yet, and always place it outdoors in the summer. This year the pot has been heavily infested with ants and flying ants. I've removed the soil and dunked the plant in water before repotting but found that it had very shallow roots. Does anyone know whether this is normal or could the ants have eaten or destroyed the root ball to this extent? I know bromeliads can be shallow rooted but was surprised such a large plant had so little root system.
