Are humidity domes essential when rooting salvia?
    #389996 - 09/10/01 07:44 AM (15 years, 11 months ago)

I'm looking into receiving some salvia cuttings in the near future. When im rooting the cuttings is it essential for a humidity dome to be used? If so, how do you get it acclimatised to your normal humidity?

If the salvia has come from a supplier with a similar climate to you, the the plants will more than likely already be acclimatised.

If you do have a problem, then thay can be acclimatised by placing a clear platic bag over then as they root, and slowly tearing holes in the top of the bag over time to slowly reduce the humidity.

Take care

Are we looking at a long time or a few days type thing?

Untill they root they need a high humidity but also much air exchange.
Once they are rooted(10-20 days) then you should gradually reduce the humidity to ambient(over a longer period, a week or 2)

hey anno, i have a salvia cutting that has been rooting for 5 days with a freezer bag over her for humidity.. she is in my window... i was wondering what i should do for air exchange and when i should start to put a few holes in the baggie? i thought about air exchange myself and put 2 little holes in the baggie yesterday but her leaves went limp soon after...so i put another bag on her and shes lookn better.. i know shes rooting cause a few roots popped out at about soil level from her stem.. all help appreciated....thanks....

hio strang,

i experienced that its fine for my salvia cuttings when i put a plastic bag over them like you. once a day i took it off and gave em some sprayed water. after a few weeks i put the bag off and now they are all very nice little plants and have no problems with my climate. i think that an established root system is most important for the new cuttings, and as long as its not complete you should raise humidity as high as possible.

i dunno if it works for you, but it worked well for me.
