So freaking stoked to find a root emerging from an Acacia courtii cutting I dipped in some IBA, stuck in cococoir/perlite, sat in the cactus seed propagating rig (bottom heat approx. 25°C when lights are on, 16 hr CWF, humidity dome)... Only one tiny little nugget of root, but I'm calling it preliminary success!
Time since treatment about 3 -4 weeks max

Not sure which conc. IBA this was, from memory it was about 3/L and dip for 30 secs ... my notes are packed away so precise details to follow..

So 3/4 cuttings have started rootin. The 4th is looking very dehydrated and I expect it will perish before rooting.
Cuttings taken from 4/5 year old potted plant recently topped up with some granular ferts, vigorous early spring growth

Lovely workup and progress results, thank you so much!

 

From memory you've run a few good experiments there, congratulations


All the theories in the world won't help if you don't run an experiment. Just do it. And take good notes
