Hydrangea care / propogation
I was reading about hydrangea care at your link https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/hydrangea/hydrangea-propagation.htm The article says "Next, strip all but the top most set of leaves from the cutting. The cutting should have only two leaves left. Cut the two remaining leaves in half crosswise (not lengthwise)." So are you saying cut the leaves completely in half crosswise, thereby removing the outer half of these two leaves? Maybe I'm reading it incorrectly. Thanks, Bonita
Yes, that's the advice. Since there are no roots, even in a high humidity environment, it is difficult to maintain the leaves' moisture. If they wilt they become prone to fungal infection. But the cutting needs energy from photosynthesis so some leaf surface is necessary. It is a balancing act.
