How long to leave rooted cuttings under mist
I've been successfully rooting rose cuttings for a few years using pool misters & a timer in a glass greenhouse. Two inch pots & plug flats sit in a bed of coarse sand. I have shade cloth on the greenhouse. I consider cuttings rooted when roots emerge from pot bottoms, resisting any temptation to tug even gently at the cuttings. My question is about transitioning cuttings. I probably leave them under mist longer than I have to, moving them to the drier parts of the sand bed rather than potting up and moving them out. Am I being overly cautious, or is there a real risk of losing my rooted cuttings when they move from the very wet conditions of the misting bench to bench in (shaded) greenhouse or shaded outdoors? Thanks.
