24/7 lights OK?

simcan(z5b/Toronto)January 19, 2010

I have about 75 semi-hardwood boxwood cuttings that have been stuck in a mixture of gritty sand and peat, sitting under an inverted clear Rubbermaid storage tote to preserve humidity and I mist them whenever it dries up a bit. It has been about two months and I haven't really checked to see if they are rooting.

They are on a plant stand with a couple of fluorescent tubes over the box, and the lights are on 24/7. Is this a problem? Do they need a light cycle?

lights no probllem I would check to see if soil temp is 70-75F... did you use a rooting hormone? under the best of conditions it could take 70 days to start rooting...
