cuttings propagation advice please
I am currently propagating many different cuttings in a Vitopod propagator via root riot cubes.
I have finally had some success with both of the lilac cuttings, which are developing new shoots and have new stems and tiny leaves appearing. The new growth is perhaps 2 to 3 inches long at present.
I noticed that some of the tiny leaves have already blackened somewhat and a couple completely dried, so I have picked those off, leaving a few healthy ones left.
I've never actually opened the vents yet - could this be part of the problem, or not? I'm a bit reluctant to do so as I have fairly new stuff in there also, but I'm sure I could open if I needed to.
Really hoping they will continue to grow as they haven't put down any roots to speak of (bar one I can see poking out the side of one cube) in terms of filling out the root riot cubes. I wonder how long that will take?
Any advice would be appreciated here. I'm currently misting them once a day in the evening.
