As my seedlings grow, I’m using them to gain some experience on my seedling cuttings creation skills. According to Jonas, seedling cuttings will create a better root system. So, I figured I’ll give these seedlings a try.
Then use a wire to prime a hole for the seedling to go in.
Pull out a seedling from the pot, then cut off the tapping root.
Then dipped the cutting into rooting hormone. I like this rooting hormone from Wilson. It’s a gel, so it seems to stick better to the cutting in comparison to powder.
The final step is to put the cutting into the hole, and gently pad the surrounding sand to secure the cutting in place.
Now just need to keep it moist, and see if a new root system develops.
