Growing sweet lime(mousambi) from a cutting
I managed to get 5 cuttings from a tree and followed instructions from a youtube video but I could not procure the rooting agent necessary but planted the cuttings anyhow. It's been 2 and a half weeks since then, only one cutting has survived, a small leaf has sprouted on it. Is it time for me to remove the plastic wrap and place it in an open pot? I'm afraid to leave it inside the plastic cover because the tiny leaf is already very close to the plastic cover, will this inhibit growth?

You can remove the plastic if the cutting is growing and larger.
Just remember to keep the soil moist.
Not every cutting will be successful, that is why many gardeners plant several cuttings. When you do have success, it's always joyful!
