Summer Plant Cuttings

I started a few plant cuttings this summer.  Pretty good success rate.   Soil was equal mix of potting soil, sand, sphagnum moss.  I also used rooting hormone.  Kept soil moist at all times.  Misting twice a day.  On colder nights, the cuttings were covered in plastic boxes.

Lemon tree cuttings.  I got 5 plants that are ready to be put in gallon pots soon.  I was amazed at how thick the roots can get from these lemon tree cuttings.

I hope to keep them in a greenhouse this winter and plant them in the spring.
