    Rooting multiple cuttings

    When rooting multiple nep cuttings at once (5 in this case), it's tempting to put them all in one or two pots for the sake of compactness. I can see, however, that having them all in individual containers might be better down the road, say when they are ready for potting, possibly easier on the roots and all that. What do y'all do?

    I like to put the cuttings in large ziplocak bags. I dip the cut in rooting hormone and then wrap it in damp LFS. Then place the cutting in a large ziplock that I then seal. Put under indirect light and wait.

    What I usually do with multiple cuttings is to wrap each piece separately in live sphagnum, after treating the cut ends with a rooting hormone / fungicide; and then cover the moss with cellophane, held in place by rubber bands. They are all then usually propped upright in a pot and placed under lights; or else outside in diffused lighting, occasionally kept in zip-lock bags . . .

    None that I know of. Some work better then others. I always use a gel type rooting hormone. Clonex or Olivia's brand I have had good results with.

    I usually put the cuttings into the same pot for compactness. Of course, I usually check the roots every 6 weeks or so which means once they have roots about an inch long ill put them into their own pot.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
