Avatar of Roses cuttings, report #1
I don't know if the photo captures it, but the jars with fertilizers have slightly muckier water than the one without.
And that's about it.
I was hoping for greener leaves, and perhaps one or two roots. But the only thing happening seems to be that I have to change water more often. And I procrastinate that. I bet I wake up some day only to find two jars with dark green goo with a brown stump stuck into it.
I could by some hormones to speed up the rooting process, but I'm not happy about that. Since I have troubbles with my own hormones I do know how much that can go wrong.
At a second thought... [leaving the computer]
Now I've cleaned the jars. Wasn't that hard.
Interestingly enough the cutting in fresh water seems to be more healthy than those with added fertilizer. I have to take a closer look at fertilizing, maybe I'm overfeeding my babies? Well, if one of them survives I'm happy. Scented geraniums are good for flavouring sponge cakes.
