This years UC Davis cuttings rooting now

tmc2009March 23, 2013

I received my UCDavis cuttings on Feb 28 and put them in the moss by March 2. It's been about three weeks and I'm transferring them to the cups.

TMC - Your videos are great. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us. I have several questions. At what temperature range do you root your cuttings? Do you ever use additional bottom heat? When your cuttings are ready to put under the lights, how many hours of light do you give them each day?

I do not use a heat mat. I'd say they are at about 70-72F. They get about 8 hours under the florescent lights.

Why only 8hrs a day of light? I'm exposing mine to 16 hrs. and they're quite happy. Thanks
