Question: How can I tell when my cuttings are rooted and ready to be potted?

Answer: Pull on them very gently. If they offer slight resistance, they are beginning to form roots and will soon be ready to be dug and potted. If they are firmly rooted, you’ll be able to tell with that gentle tug. Timing for rooting will vary with species, time of year and the conditions under which you’re rooting them. Some types may form roots within a few days, while others will take many weeks, even months.
