Repotting of cuttings

Post  MarcRN on Mon May 18, 2009 5:43 pm

How long should you wait to repot a plant after starting it from a cutting? I know that each species is unique unto it's self but is there some type of generalized standard?

If there's no real reason to hurry it up, I always find a year is good. The roots are in no danger of breaking off the cutting by that time. If you move them the same summer you struck them, you're likely to loose a lot of them.

What kind of plant cutting is it? when were the cuttings taken? Are the cuttings firmly rooted into the rooting medium?

I am merely talking about in general. I plan on doing some cuttings throughout the upcoming year and just needed some general advice. Thank you all for replying.
