Hib cuttings, need help with please--

klo1(z7 OK)August 17, 2005

I have several cuttings of a purple hibiscus, Midnight Blue, that I am rooting. Doing well except for a yellowing of the leaves. In checking for roots I found they didn't have many yet so I'm afraid to use regular fertilizer. Any ideas on what I can use that won't hurt them? This is my first attempt at rooting cuttings so could really use some help!

I like Fertilome's Blooming and Rooting. It won't burn tiny roots, but will stimulate their growth.

Thank you bdjeepers, I'll get some of the Fertilome next time I'm in town, I've promised a couple of these cutting to a friend so sure don't want to lose them!
