Default Propagation advice

Hi
I managed to get hold of a rajapuri pup and a dwarf brazillian pup about 3 weeks ago. They came as rootless pups chopped back. Itís still winter here in Europe and probably not ideal growth weather by any means (but over here one takes the chance to get new varieties when one has it). Theyíre sort of standing still, not really pushing rollers or anything and Iím worried about rot. Any tips?

Default Re: Propagation advice

many people on the forum use coarse sand/sharp sand and perlite

the idea being to provide lots of drainage so you do not overwater

once it has roots and is showing signs of growth you can transplant to a container with youre regular soil mix

i use peat and perlite and go really easy on the watering
let the soil dry somewhat between watering
