Cuttings question

DyersEndDyersEnd Posts: 730

This is probably a silly question but following advice from forum members I've taken some cuttings from an alpine phlox.  I took them a couple of weeks ago and they look fine in their pots with plastic tents over the top - they're outside in the shade.

Questions, how long before they 'take' and how do you know whether they have taken or not?  If they have, how long before you pot them on?

    Thanks Edd, I'll take their tents off and let them be 'au naturel' and I've been misting occasionally anyway so that will continue.

    It's not quite 2 weeks yet but I like the idea of leaving them longer so they get more established.  Most are in fairly big pots but there are 2 in small ones so I can look out for roots on them. image
