Ruby Glow: Info & Questions Wanted
I have a lot of questions for those who are Growing Ruby Glow.
Now mine is growing very slowly; the first 12" I have lost all but one of my leaves. It's only about 2' tall; and it took from April/May to get that tall; it really seems to almost freeze in time before it starts to grow again. Now the Last 12" the Leaves seem healthier; but growth is still slow.
Questions: Is this normal for Ruby Glow to Grow Slowly? (one other Person on this Forum seems to have the same issues Im having with this Species)
Now it seems that it may be starting to put out new Shoots; but like the whole plant; they are almost frozen in time and only about 1/8" long; but there is one in almost every node. Now once the Shoots get long and Sturdy enough is it Easy to Root? Does it take multiple cuttings to finally get one to Root? Does anyone have any suggestions as to a Tried and Tested way to Get it to Root Easily.
All Ruby Glow info would be greatly appreciated. I would also love to hear how much Sun/Shade your RG is getting; etc.
I also have a Macrocarpa that has the same type of Square Stem; but although it dosen't grow fast; it has kept growing since purchasing it in May. It grows Slow & Steady.
Are all Square Stem Passi's Slower to Grow? Does anyone have info about the Latent Virus that is present in the Square Stem species? And if so is there something in particular you do to your plants to keep this Virus under control?
Thanks for all the info; I would also love to hear about any Square Stem Passi's and how they Grow.
