Lemon tree cuttings (Newbie)
So I've had some success rooting cuttings off of my Meyer's Lemon tree. I had previously used the cup with shallow water technique, and this worked, giving me two nice small trees. But this time i tried something different and used a rooting powder and potting soil technique. I placed all the cuttings in a clear container and opened it and sprayed almost daily with a water bottle to keep everything moist. I have the container in a east facing window so they get some morning sun through blinds.
After 3 weeks i checked them and saw 1/2 inch roots developing. Now 4-5 weeks later they all have cluster of flowers growing, but NO leaves?! I have noticed that the cuttings that dropped most/all leaves have the largest/most developed flowers. None have opened yet, and most are about pea sized.
Does anybody have an idea about what could be making them not wanna grow leaves to feed themselves, and instead growing flowers? Also should I remove these flowers to possible encourage some foliage growth? Thanks in advance, I LOVE this site!
