i've never had a shoot cutting survive.It can certainly work, but shoots that are still attached to their rhizomes are less eager to form roots than severed shoots, so it might require additional patience. The upside is lower mortality, though.
With the proper protocol the success rate should be pretty high. Might require spending a bit for better control of light, humidity, and heat, though. I found that it's harder to have high failure rates in water compared to soil, but then transplanting tends to have a significant failure rate, which it's possible to have very good success rates directly in potting soil.i've never had a shoot cutting survive.
but a shoot with a section of root?
got two of them that have started to show growth after a few weeks of not doing anything.
I have them getting non direct sunlight for most of the day. They’re inside in a sunny room. I was hoping to see some signs of rooting before I moved outsideI'm not a pro, but my advice is that you should keep watering them for as long as they look like they have a chance. Severing the plant is traumatic for them.
How much sunlight and water does it get?
I was doing very little water to keep the soil moist but it wasnt drying out very well being inside. I have recently started to split their time inside and out. Should I lop off the dead withered leaves to try and promote new growth?Sunlight seems fine, but what about water?
So I moved everything into pint pots outside and most died within a week or two. I did have one plant start to spout new growth and one that stayed green but dont see anything new. I intend to cut them down once the weather gets cold and move them into a shed until the spring. Maybe the roots will take hold while they're dormant?
