Q.Covering Cuttings With A Plastic Bag

Zone 95126 | Anonymous added on June 22, 2022 | Answered

Wow, is your web site informative! So glad I stumbled on to it. Anyway, I was reading about propagating Hibiscus cuttings and saw you should cover the cuttings with a plastic bag. However, it did not say for how long. So I was wondering how long you keep the cuttings covered for. Thank you.

I'm glad the website has been useful! I would keep the plastic on till roots form. It creates a greenhouse effect that can hasten rooting. You might have to open the bag every few days and let it air out if it seems like it is getting too much humidity. To check for roots, lightly pull on the plant. If it resists, roots have formed.
