rose of sharon 'Blue Satin' cuttings
How long should they take to root, if I used rooting starter and keep them misted and in indirect light? They are kept at a constant 77 to 78 degrees F.
The leaves are staying green for at least two weeks before they begin to start looking slightly less deep green and slightly more limp?
After 2 weeks some have a very short fine hair like root growing, others have no sign of root growth at all. Is this normal?
4 of these are planted in clean course sand, and the other 4 are planted in a mixture of sand and vermiculite.
The ones planted in the sand seem to be doing much better than the other 4.
Is anyone familiar with propagating this cultivar of Rose of Sharon during this time of year?
Please help, this is the first time I have tried to propagate anything from cuttings, and have not found any other local nurseries selling this particular cultivar of Rose of Sharon. I did see a mail order supplier of them, but those were very small and their cost was the same as what I paid for my orginal one which was in a 5 gallon pot and almost 3 feet tall at purchase time.
