cutting rooting on wrong end
I'm posting this again because the other post is locked and I couldn't add any comments. So I'm trying again.
I'm a novice but I have read a lot of posts and looked at hundreds of pictures of rooting cuttings but have never seen one like this or saw it discussed. Since a picture is worth a thousands words, take a look and then I'm open to suggestions as to what my step is. First is the top of the cutting with initial growing above the buds and the second is the bottom end with a bud showing and some swelling bumps. The cutting is about 3/4" diameter and about 3 1/2" long. Thanks for any comments.
