Technique of rooting
« on: Tuesday, 26 March 2013 - 21:08:31 »
Hello everyone, today I received the plants grafted on Harrisia and mirtillocactus. Some do not have roots, as you can see in the photo. I want to know which technique of rooting you can advise me, as you would work? Thanks in advance.

Hello Carlo, in spring they usually do roots quite fast. Sometimes we re-cut the stock if the cut is not too clean.
Is there a part not looking so good?

Ok, thank you. The cut has a badly cut hand, but has healed well and I do not think there are problems. I would like to root them under lamps, because some rootstocks are very dehydrated and I think that most aspect, will be worse. Have you ever had this problem?

The more dehydrated the faster they tend to root when conditions are warm, at least that's what I experience.

Thank you very much for talking to me about your experience. What I will do is put them in the warm room where I keep the seedlings. I keep them away from the lamps, pot empty landless and spray them with water about 3 times a week hoping that will encourage them to produce roots and avoid too much dehydration. I will keep you informed of the outcome that I have.

Here, as it appears the plant after about 20 days. He made only two roots and when they will be a little longer will be put on pumice.
