when do you re-pot bands?

I would like to know when other folks move their cuttings into larger pots. Do they fare better if left in their original pot longer, OR are they better off with more room to spread out their roots?

Happy Gardening,

I move my cuttings to 6X6 sq pots once the roots have;
a. Started growing out the drainage holes
b. Appeared on all 4 sides of my pots.

Here is an example of a rose cut on 7/28/06, and getting ready to re-pot on 8/20. This is the HT rose Rosemary Harkness. Npte the root way off to the right is starting to grow right out of the drainage hole. I can keep track of these very easily since the pots I use are see-thru. As soon as a root even starts to appear I can tell.

Hey, nice pots! Where did you get those?

I like that logic for when to repot. Thanks for the reply.

When would you start feeding this plant? I have been feeding one drop of Schultz per gallon H20 to my guys as soon as they are in larger pots (normal rate is 7 drops per gallon, so it's not too strong).

Happy Gardening,

Forget where I got them, but they were about $.25 per pot, and you had to buy like 250 for them to even ship.

I start fertilizing as soon as they are taken out of the misting house, which is usually a week after repotting. I fertilize with Greenlight root promoter and fertilizer. I am more concerned about getting roots going than anything else. I will post a picture tonight of a potted rose with roots developed 50 days after taking the cutting
