need ocotillo help
I recently got an ocotillo. I planted cuttings & a plant. The cuttings were placed in cacti soil and a coarse sand and they have sprouted leaves. The plant was planted in the soil it came from and it is not taking off. The stems have green on them, but the root has the burgandy bark and appears somewhat white inside. I dug it up the other day thinking I needed better drainage, but I am wondering if the root is dead. I did nick the root when I cut up the plant. It also rained a couple of days in my area and I am wondering if it got too wet. Should I cut off all the stems & try to plant them since they are still green? Also, does anyone know where I can get different varieties of ocotillo? I was told there are four different varieties.
