Rooting Cuttings

Walter Reeves
by Walter Reeves
If you're rooting cuttings of coleus, impatiens, Confederate rose or angel trumpet in a windowsill, I found a faster way to help them make roots! Details at
I experimented with twi identical buckets, rooting St Augustinegrass cuttings. One had an aquarium air stone, the other did not.
I put them side by side in the sun.
After three weeks I took them out for comparison.
These are the cuttings WITHOUT the aeration.
These cuttings WITH aeration had many more roots!
