transplanting bougainvillea cuttings
This winter strong wind knocked off a branch of my royal purple bougainvillea. I cut it into a few pieces and stuck it in the large container with the mother plant -not really expecting them to root. I thought they were probably dead by now, but when I went to yank them outI have discovered that they have small leaves. My question is when do I put them in their own pots?
I dont want them to stay in with the mom plant too long because the roots will grow into hers and bougainvillea roots are fragile. However, I dont know if the new ones are ready to be moved. How big do the leaves need to be to move them? I don't think I should pull on the cuttings (to check if rooted) because of their fragile roots and they are still little... any advice?
