A couple of days ago, I received some cuttings of a Nova Zembla rhododendron from a friend (thanks divahethr). By the way, she is a very good trader, and my plants arrived on time and in very good condition. Highly recommended as a trader. Anyway, after I got the cuttings I filled a glass with water and stuck the cuttings in (I didn't have any potting soil). I also stuck some willow branches in as I've heard that this aids in the rooting process. Will this work? Am I doing this wrong? If so, can I still save the cuttings and get them to root a different way? Please help!!
