If they brown all the time you're scraping them, the humidity is too low, you're using too much fertilizer, the sun is burning them or you're not wetting them often enough.

I don’t think I scraped them, humidity should be ok since they were wrapped in sphagnum (or not?), there is no sun to burn them and roots covered by moss, not using fertilizer at all, and I kept moss moderately wet all the time... so not really sure what happens to them. Unless not enough humidity ? Should I put it in a bag?

Why are you checking the roots daily? STOP!

At this point, if that was my plant, I'd do the following:
  1. Immerse it completely, for several hours, in KelpMax solution.
  2. Saturate sphagnum moss with that same solution, wring it out, then use it to moderately-loosely repot the plant in a plastic pot.
  3. Set the pot in a tray and add some KelpMax solution to it, this time only.
  4. Invert a clear plastic bag over the plant and pot to trap the humidity around the plant.
  5. Place it in a shady and very warm location.
  6. Water it ONLY by adding to the tray.
Do nothing else. In four- to six weeks, it is likely the plant will have the beginnings of a decent root system, and can be treated normally.
