Starting Shrubs From Cuttings

Zone 7/8 | yankee added on July 2, 2013 | Answered

I read your article on starting shrubs from cuttings. I could only find liquid rooting hormone and used it. These are softwood cuttings. I planted them 2 days ago. There is "fuzz" and I'm hoping not mold growing on the cuttings. Is this normal? Should I take out of plastic bags? Help? Thanks, Chris

    They need to air out some. I would suggest adding some holes in the plastic for ventilation.
