Quicker way of propagating a tomato cutting?

umayamla(7a)June 7, 2011

Hello, when I was moving branches of my tomato plant to stay in it's cage, I accidently broke off a 6 inch branch. The plant is large enough that this probably won't hamper it but I remember putting a broken branch last year into a cup of water and roots grew out of it. I'm hoping I can get this one to do the same but I was wondering if I could speed up the process by adding nutrients to the water. The sooner the branch has roots the better chance I can get some fruit from it by the end of the growing season.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

adding nutriens to the water will NOT speed up the formation of roots.
