    Question about cuttings

    Hi guys I was just wondering, when you take cuttings, do they produce roots or leaves first, or a little of both at the same time? I have about 9 cuttings that I used Rootone on and they are finally starting to bud. I'm guessing the answer is roots but I just want to make sure.

    Thanks for any help!

    I think it depends on rooting substrate and your conditions.
    I had roots before leaves with LFS.
    Leaves before roots with pearlite.

    I usually get a couple of roots before the activated node takes off...

    Thanks everyone for the responses! I guess I am back to where I started though, it seems everyone has a different answer lol

    Jimscott: I read that the roots don't like to be exposed to light. I am interested in trying that method though, maybe just in a dark colored pot.
