Salvia cutting straight into the soil
« on: November 09, 2019, 11:20:10 pm »

Do you have any experience with rooting Sally cuttings in soil? I've used wet perlite so far, but since my mother plant keeps growing like crazy, I decided to try saving me some time and potting it straight into a wet soil with a lot of perlite to ensure properly aeration.
Will keep you updated :).

I think this is the healthiest way to root, aside from growing aerial roots and then cutting off a section.

The roots are acclimated to the substrate right away, and get more oxygen & nutrients than rooting in water.

Downside is its harder to check on development than water or perlite...
