Crepe/Crape? Myrtle Propagation Help with Setup
Hi everyone. I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of their crepe myrtle cuttings being propagated. Last year I took about 10 cuttings and was only able to get 2 of them to root (they are in the ground now so I'm not sure if they made it through the winter or not). I wanted to improve on last years try, so was hoping someone here could possibly show me some pics of your setup so I can do better than last year.
Here is what I did last time:
1-10 Cuttings (cut at a node) off of new growth, about 6 inches each.
2-Took off all leaves except for the top 2.
3-dipped the cut end in rooting hormone
4-put in pot with sand/potting soil mix
6-covered with a quart size freezer bag for green house effect.
7-placed in south facing window
8-waited....and waited....and waited....
Any help here? I would really appreciate it. I'd like to get a handle on it before the new growth starts in a few months.
Since then, i've purchased a 5 x 4 x 2 mini greenhouse and also have a 4'L grow light now so if these items will be helpful to use, i can do that.
