  • Hi Bloob Folks!!! I'm coming over to the other side.. With a bloob question 😉

    Hello Everybody! This is my very first time posting over here in the blueberry forum I must admit though I have been lurking here & there for quite a while already 😈 lol.. Okay so since I'm already obsessed with rooting figs, I fig'd why not try to root blueberry plants?? My parents have 8 awesome highbush blueberry plants that I raid each summer religiously (and also try to take care of for them ie pruning, fertilizing etc). I would REALLY love a clone of this super productive variety, whatever the heck it is.. It's definitely TASTEY 😋! So I took some nice cuttings a few weeks ago when I was pruning. (New red growth, all vegetative buds & no fruit buds on these babies). So I threw them in a bag of coir after applying some rooting hormone and here I am 3-4 weeks later and they look kinda weird.. I don't know if they are little roots or a callous, or some weird fungal growth or what have you.. Would you mind taking a look at the pic below and telling me what you think this growth is please? It's not on all of them.. Just the thinner ones.. Weird in a cool kinda way.. Hopefully something good is happening here bc I would LOVE to have this blueberry bush at my house

    Without further adieu.. Here are the pics..

    That appears to be nice, healthy callus tissue from which the roots will grow. Good going.

      YIPPIE!!! I had my fingers crossed that it was something taking me in the direction of roots! Thank you for letting me know! Now I know what to look for in the others that aren't doing too much yet.. I'd say about half look like the one in the pic.. Weird though.. Only the really twiggy/thin looking cuttings have calloused then.. The nice plump red ones are still the same.. Go figure 😉 Thanks again Gina! I now have that 'warm & fuzzy' feeling I was hoping for! Lol
