‘Check’ For ‘Developed’ Roots


Anonymous added on July 23, 2012 | Answered

Relating to your article: www.gardeningknowhow.com/trees-shrubs/how-to-root-cuttings-from-various-shrubs-bushes-and-trees. htm It says, "Check the plant every two weeks or so to see if roots have developed. " and "Once roots have developed. . . .they're ready to grow. " How do you check for roots, and what is a practical criterion to distinguish 'developed' from undeveloped roots?

Check for root development by gently pulling on the cutting. If itshows some resistance, then roots have usually developed.If it pulls out too easily, then it should be left alone and rechecked within another week or two.
