Newbie confirmation and help 'dropping buds' lingo?
I got the best package in the mail, a box STUFFED with cuttings from Cindy, she ROCKS!!
So I have 90% rooted in 4" pots and 3 in 12" pots that have a good root system on them. I lost one to rot, I think it was too green of a cutting but pretty good for my first time rooting cuttings!
Please confirm for me (once they are 10-12" tall):
Plant in good well draining potting soil.
Fertilize with MG (Easiest because it is on my watering lines) once or twice a week
Keep in morning and afternoon sun and try to avoid the noon-day sun
Watch for snails and slugs (I have sluggo on hand in case I see a problem)
Keep them moist but not wet
Look at them 200 times a day to see if they grow :)
Only expect blooms after a 'Y' is developed- could take a year or so.
1-2 gallon pot, I only have room for 3 in the ground this year
??? Am I on track?
Last question... 'dropping buds' I am not up with the lingo. What is that? When I think of dropping buds it means they finally are starting to form. But reading some posts, now I think it is because they get too hot and the buds drop off....
Let me know
Thank you so much in advance : )
