getting a new christmas tree
New pinus tree plants (looking like a Christmas tree) are growing from the mother roots of the main pinus tree. How must I separate them so they can grow in a pot on their own? I tried it, and I put it in water, but after a couple of days the leaves start hanging. When I separated it from the mother root, it didn't yet have roots of its own. I thought maybe in the water it will eventually develop its own roots. Can you please share with me the knowledge how to separate the new pinus plant from its mother root successfully? Thank you.

You will need to get as many roots as possible.
You can dip the roots in rooting hormone and place in a pot of perlite.
Keep it moist until the roots are large enough to plant in a larger pot.
