  • What to do with tis cutting?

    I receive tis wonderful log cutting from very generous Cugino. Is a True Genovese Nero... I score all of my cutting as I have bet result lately with tis also apply dip n gro hormone. Has been in SM shoebox now few weeks and aired out daily. It start instantly showing signs of swelling and callous and little tiny root point and suddenly stopped doing everything. Is still look health. No dry out. But is no do anything at all now.... What can I do to Help it so I no lose it ? Top if cutting is wet. No rot at all.

    What a giant chunk of wood! I've had a few cuttings stall out on me like that as well. I'm looking forward to what the forum has to say. Good luck with the cutting.

      Mike,
      I would bury it in the ground in a shade. You need more time for fat cuttings and more patience. In the soil they do better . But again, that is just my experience.

        This sounds like a good plan to me, keep doing what you are doing and if nothing by time it's warm enough bury the sucker!

      I agree with ryan, just make sure its not too moist and put it back in the moss. Let it ride, thats a large cutting, so the roots generally take a bit longer to show, but then it will explode in top growth afterwards. I had a few large cuttings that were slow to root, but now have some of the largest growth up top. Keep up the good work.
      May the Figs be with you!

            You mean cut off callous ?

        • #9
          When you score a cutting, only scrape off the bark. The scrape should be green. If it's white you went too deep. I put clonex on my scrapes. I've had better luck with that. As was already mentioned, larger cuttings often take longer. Keep it moist with plenty of air and you should be good to go.

          Best of luck with it.

            Personally, I would pot it up, keep it moist and humid, and otherwise forget about it.

            Let it be so it can do is thing.

              I agree with Scott. I have a dozen large cuttings that I direct potted after scoring and dipping in rooting hormone.

              I put them in my unheated GH a few weeks ago and the only thing I'm going to do is periodically check to make sure the soil is still moist.

          • #12
            Seem like potting up is majority so far. I get afraid to do so because I feel like if I no see progress with root I can try different way of rooting. If I pot it I will never known what going on with it and I do not want to fail yet another wonderful cutting and Amico.

                Mike! NO WORRIES!! I have had the EXACT same thing as you on my giant Moscatel Preto cutting & Nordland.. Both were giving me adjada for weeks lol! Everyday I look and nothing was doing! When I saw the two little white points around the callous area (you have the exact same white points in your pic of the callous) I put it into a cup of coir & perlite with a cup on top, and within a couple days I saw monster roots shooting out. I think that is exactly what yours is about to do πŸ‘! So dont worry, BE HAPPY! Lol πŸ˜‰
