I have a guava cutting a few months old that has lost the few leaves it had… I kept on covered patio covered in plastic bag and watered once a day. What can I do?

Check to see if there is any activity from the roots, but that looks dead.

If there is any life left, or any root nodules forming, then you can continue to care for it. That soil is too compact and moist to root a cutting, though.

I would use a low nutrient mix designed for rooting cuttings and seedlings, and don't push it down around the cutting. Let it sit without compacting.

Here are some articles to help you with taking cuttings:
