Hardwood hydrangea cuttings

A few weeks back whilst tidying the garden, I trimmed a vanilla fraise, and rather than just chucking out the trimmings I popped them into a heated indoor propagated. They are now feeling rather fixed suggesting they’ve rooted, with leaf buds also forming. Should I keep these on heat (?!), or turn off and transplant to a light window sill? Where they are currently has limited light.

    Is it possible to move them to a better lit position as they are (without bottom heat)?

    I usually leave transplanting cuttings until I can see signs of white roots at the bottom of the pot/module.

  • Cheers for the reply. Would you leave a lid on?

    Don’t think they need the lid and it risks them getting something like botrytis or another mould type condition.
    As long as the compost is damp but not soggy they should be fine. 😊

  • I’ll order some grow lights and move the pots, if they’ve taken I’ll be using this method for future cuttings. 100% success rate 👍
