Roots on Cutting

Posted by ayyubaddeen Jax FL (My Page) on

I have some cuttings going into rooting and some of them have roots all the way up the cutting. When I plant them what do I do? Do I leave the roots on it and leave some of it stilling out of the soil? burying the whole cutting with the roots intact? Remove the top half of the roots from the cutting? Or something else???

RE: Roots on Cutting

i would plant cutting horizontal so that you might get multiple plants from one cutting. if your piece is long enough you might be able to cut in half and then plant horizontal.
