rooting cutting+egg broke=_________
Can anyone with rooting experience help me out? I have rooted only a couple seasons now and I am using the egg method this year.
problem: I have a Jeannie Moragne cutting where it looks like the egg had a micro crack and has leaked slowly into the surrounding perlite.
history: the cutting is 4 weeks deep into rooting; it is a cutting from a local nursery here in SoCal; set up 2 inches deep using DynaGro's Root Gel on callus and placed into a perlite 80-90% and pine bark chips in a clear plastic 32 oz PowerAde bottle. Egg can be seen through the bottle and can be smelled (not too bad, minor odor of old milk); leakage looks minor and gelatinous currently.
Should I abort this potting set up and re-configure or should I leave as is; to not break new micro-roots etc? My concern with leaving it is that the rot from the egg proteins could spread to the cutting, but I don't want to break any roots that may have already formed early.
Thank you kindly.
