Highbush cranberry cuttings, when?
I am planning to try to propagate some highbush cranberries using Janie's propagation box. I have read all of her postings and have a couple of questions.
Right now the highbush cranberries appear to still be dormant. When should I take the cuttings? Now? After it leafs out? When it is 70 at night? Thought I would cut off about 6 inches, put on some rooting hormone, and put them in Janie's box.
What about the temperature of the box -- air and root level? Was thinking about laying a thermometer inside, or could put one down into the mix to see what the root temps are. Maybe a heat mat [for now]? What do you think?
Any ideas on approximately how long it would be before they could be potted? 2 weeks? 3 weeks? 4 weeks?
Obviously, this is a first for me.
