oh no! my salvia plants :(
    #3824797 - 02/23/05 11:35 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

ARGH!

I've just done my first cuttings off my wonderful salvia plant, I got 3 really good ones and theres still loads on the mother plant, looks better if anything because it's bushier... anyway! to the point.

I only made the cuttings about 6 hours ago and they have gone SERIOUSLY droopy! oh no!

I'm not sure I have done it totally correctly. I have done general plant cuttings before and had 100% success in terms of rooting. I've done them into soil (correct mixtures, used rooting powder blah blah), but one thing im not sure about is that they are about 20cm high and have a very small crop of leaves on the top (4 ish) and two much larger ones about mid-way down the stems. I'm worried these larger ones will, instead of helping the plant, simply drain too much of what little nutrition it can bring in without its roots.

They are very well watered and have been misting them from time to time to see it that helped.



Does anyone have pics of cuttings they have done so that I can compare?

Thanks

i do not have pics, but ive done plenty of cuttings of regular herb plants, you name them ive done them with my dady. but that doesnt sound right... make sure they arent in direct sunlight or too hot of temps, thats the only varible that sounds like it could be affecting, although i could be wrong.

Yeah cut the bigger leaves off, or you can cut them in half.. I prefer to remove them at the node. Give them a misting also.

Is it in any type of humidity tent? Cuz I find that enclosing a new cutting in a humid environment keeps it from drooping. GL :smile:  Oh, and I posted a pic of a cutting just this week, do a search in this forum.

yeah, I've had the same thing happen, though I've never heard of rooting them right in soil. root them in water and give them some humidity, if you caught it quick enough they should come back.

I just took a cutting from my salvia a couple days ago, put a wet plastic sack over it right after cutting it and it didn't wilt a bit, it's a bit smaller than yours though, 10-12cm.

Salvia cuttings don't usually do well when placed into soil to root. They do better when you stick the ends of the cuttings into some clean water and then cover them with a clear plastic bag. It usually takes about 7-10 days for roots to start popping out.

Its exactly 24hours later now and they have been very well watered since i cut them. Do you think it's too late to do the water method?

I read that that was the easiest way but it was after I had gone out and bought a load of special soil and rooting powder etc. and felt encline to use the alternative soil method which is a bit retarded really but like I said, I've had 100% success planting in soil so far... hope that stat doesn't drop!

No, its not too late for the water. If you have to, cut off all of the leaves except for the top 2 and make sure they get plenty of light.

Not too late at all. As long as it's still alive it's worth a try.

I think that you're trying to hard :smile: Salvia is one tough plant, and you don't need to baby it! I accidentally knocked over one of my plants and it broke in half! The bottom half that was still in the pot only had two leaves, and is now a happy healthy plant. As for the top half, it was about 6-8 inches tall. I stripped off the bottom two leaves and put it in a cup of perlite and water, no mist or tent or anything. It was really droopy for the first few days! Then it perked right up, within a week it had roots starting. After a few weeks in the perlite, I repotted it with it's original stalk, and now I have two happy healthy plants!

Don't overwater! They like to get air. Lots of perlite is a good thing! Feel free to pm me if you'd like pics or more advice :smile:

:goodluck:

I have had 100% success rate when rooting my cuttings in plain tap water without humidity tents. One time I tried some rooting hormone on a few cuttings and they all died within about 3 days.
The cuttings will be droopy for a while. The length of time depends on the size of the cutting. Sometimes it helps to remove the bottom leaves. If you leave them on they will stay droopy for a bit longer, but they will bounce back.
I have two very small cuttings rooting right now. They were wilted to the point I thought they were dead. I left them alone and now they look very healthy and have roots within a week of being wilted.
Hope this helps.

I use rockwool cubes and some clonex gel... works wonders. Just put in a humidity dome and after a day or two the things start pumping roots.

Man mine don't even droop when I cut them anymore, with the gel and the instant humitity.... just cut them not too tiny.

Yay!

Thanks for the helpful hints everyone.
