omg i rooted one!!!!!!!!!!
I received some ROOTED plants from both Fuzzy and Matt on June 29th... so while I was re-planting those I had one cutting from Upland that had NOT rotted through after 8 weeks like my other 4, so I potted it in Al's Gritty Mix. To be honest I was so freaked out that I killed 4 already that I wasn't holding my breath with this one.
Anyway, today I received two rooted plant from BBB's; Daeng Sayem/Siam Red and Mardi Gras. Both look fantastic by the way... will post some pics later.
As I was preparing to pot those two I looked at that single cutting on my kitchen counter and thought what the heck let me re-do it and see if I can save it now that I know a little more. Well I yanked it out of the Gritty mix and what do you know there were 1 inch thick roots all around!! What in the world! I didn't see any leaf growth so I was not expecting roots!
So somehow the cutting didn't root in cactus/perlite for 8 weeks but then rooted in Al's Gritty Mix in exactly 21 days??? So maybe it wasn't ME after all it was the soil. LOL. I'm soo excited that I'm actually giddy!
Dude from now on I'm putting EVERYTHING in Al's Gritty Mix, see if I don't. It's a miracle.
Al thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your mix restored my faith and my confidence!
Now I'm off to potting Moonie's mystery cutting she sent me. Thanks Moonie!! If this roots I will send you the plant! :)
