Roots popping out all over

hrhcsh(7)March 15, 2011

I moved my cuttings out of the baggies about a week ago and potted them in 24oz clear cups, I have buds / leaves coming on all of them... BUT I also have roots shooting out from the cuttings above the potting mix. Should I remove them or let them go. or plant them deeper, I'm about as deep as I can get them in the 24oz cups :>(

Well If you have other roots appearing in the cup I would let it just air prune themselves off over time.

If you know you have roots down lower it is not that big of a deal.

I had the same problem with a Black Weeping. Roots appearing over soil line with no other visible roots. I added soil mounted up near the roots and a week later I saw the roots exploding all over the inside of the cup.

I had no success with the baggie method, so I started mine in water and only got the white fuzzy, styrofoam looking pre-cursors to roots. Now I have roots.

Look at this way, you have the best of both worlds going- Roots AND Leaves.
