About two months ago I did a demonstration on cuttings with the Australian scholars. During the session we took a number of Hoya sp. and Piper unguicalatum cuttings. The Hoya sp. cuttings are looking good, showing signs of growth. I will be potting some of them on soon.
The Piper unguicalatum have looked pretty poor from the start. The growth form seemed a bit questionable for cuttings. The foliage yellowed within three days of being taken. Ever since, they have remained in the state. No signs of top growth or rooting through. Today I decided to take them out and bin them. To my surprise they have actually rooted. I potted them in a fresh mix with some osmocote, this will hopefully promote growth.
