Blooms 'n Roots

Interestingly, of my 11 cuttings from Aloha, after almost 7 weeks, 7 are starting to show claws opening and tiny leaves starting, 2 have several small leaves about maybe 2" long, and 2 have inflos that have some blooms on them. Haven't lifted and looked at the bottles since I didn't want to disturb them. But today, I checked them all out and, lo and behold, the only ones that have several nice roots showing are the with inflos!

People have said they cut the inflos off of cuttings so the roots can develop quicker, so this was a bit surprising. lol

Sounds like they are the strong ones of the group.. It happens when different varities root quicker than others...

When others talk of cutting off inflos..they mean if there is no other claw activity along with the inflo growing at the same time. If the inflo was growing and the leaves were not..all of the energy is focused on the inflo and not in the rooting process.. SO, when i have an inflo, i wait to see if i have claws/leaves coming along with it.. if i do, they stay on..if it goes..

Glad to hear that you are having success!! : )

Way to go!!
