Q.

Clematis

Zone zone 4 | Kath61 added on February 8, 2017 | Answered

I have had this for over a year! It almost died and I brought it back inside and babied it. Now it looks like it is going to die again! It gets no bigger, but just wants to dry up and die. Anything I can do to kick start this for an outdoor life this coming spring? It is watered from the bottom and not in direct sunlight.

    If you are rooting a cutting, did you use a rooting hormone? This can aid in developing roots and keeping bacteria or fungus from forming.
    You may also want to start cuttings in smaller containers to avoid overwatering.
    A soilless medium that is light and very well draining is recommended.

    If you are wintering over an existing plant; it is best to winter over in a cold location.

    You can allow the plant to go dormant and then leave in a garage or cold shed.
