Q.Do I Water Frequently, My Propagated Heather?

Zone LaOtto, IN 46763 | Anonymous added on May 14, 2021 | Answered

I just attempted to propagate heather, following your procedure from 2018. Do I check it weekly for water status? I understand it takes months to root properly. What are the signs that it is strong and ready for transplantation? Thank you for your help.
