Default transplant clippings not taking

Hi All,

I am trying to get another Choke Berry (not cherry) to grow
by transferring a clipping from another plant. This is
supposedly how these plants are propagated.

I have been using this rooting compound:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

And it does not seem to work. Three failure so far.

Am I using the wrong stuff?

Cut, dip, make hole and pour some down the hole too,
stick in hole. Did I miss something?

Many thanks,
-T

┬* Just a guess , but I think you might be using too much rooting
hormone . The instructions on mine (TakeRoot brand) say dip then shake
excess off . Are you clipping almost all the leaves off ? That lowers
the moisture requirements , cuz remember , ya got no roots to take up
water and nutrients . I also put a baggie over the container (loosely)
to help retain moisture .

it also depends upon how the cutting that is trying
to be rooted is treated. it should not be left in
the hot sun or allowed to dry out. it should be kept
moist but not soggy. etc.

Tried it both ways.

I left the leaves on. Should I have removed most of them?

not following. Bag over the rooting compound container?


Also, how long do I wait to water? Maybe I washed the stuff off?

┬* Yes , all but a couple or 3 . They lose moisture to the air┬* and the
plant has no way to replace it until it grows some roots .

┬* No , a baggie placed loosely over the pot you use for your new plant
.. Like a little tent .

┬* I soak the soil as soon as I plant the new start . After that I water
just enough to keep the soil damp .

Hard to phrase the balance. You need enough to feed the root growth.
But any more than that demands more water than the cut end can wick.
For me, it is hit and miss. I generally take 4-5 cuttings when I
want 1-2 plants (for woody plants, greens are easier).

Tent over the plant/cutting. Like a mini-greenhouse.

I've never rooted cuttings in the ground. Usually use damp sand
until roots form, and water by soaking from the bottom.

I'd say keep the soil damp, and any watering would be slow/gentle.

Hi All,

I am trying again.

This time, I cut all the leaves off but three.
Dunked the stem in the rooting compound and only
added a tiny bit to the hole. And only gave it
about 1/4 cups of water so as to not wash off
the compound.

The three leaves are now dead, but it look like it is
trying to sprout new leaves along its stem.

And I am back to watering it normally again.

Time will tell!

Thank you all for the help!
-T

you should not need to put any down the hole.
just FYI for future efforts.

when you see new growth that is usually a
good sign that new roots have formed.

one or two leaves is usually enough.

This all reminds me of what my brother i law said about
cooking: "Hand me the can; hand me the can opener; I
am a cook!"

When I taught myself to cook seven years ago when I
got diagnosed with T2, Oh boy! What look easy on the
outside really required a lot of learning and skills.
AND I DON'T COOK OUT OF CANS!

Fresh garden produce is to die for! Yum! I am
finally starting to see some results.

I've had good luck in the winter by sticking the clippings in coke
bottles kept full with water and placing them in a south facing window.
When roots are noticeable & the weather is warm, stick them in the ground.
