Dogwood cutting I'm a noob at this

gardenapprenticeJuly 28, 2012

I had some dogwood cuttings picked off from my new tree. They are about 1-1 1/12 week old. The leaves are yellowing now, only two at the top though. Is this a sign of roots starting? I keep it at a steady 70-77 degrees everyday, maybe a few degrees cooler in the morning. I've used a container to keep it humid. Am I expecting roots to soon? And are dogwood's easy to root? I'm not using root hormone because I want to do this on my first try with no stimulators.

this is the rose forum, i don't even know what dogwoods are, although i'm sure they must be real nice.

Dogwood trees seed themselves easily. I don't mulch around my dogwood tree, and have tons of baby plants that I kill every spring.
