Thank you guys
I have now finish this experiment, and tried it out 3 times.
The results are the same. - The honey dipped cutlings, are not working.They keep rotting and decompose.
The one with the cemical “Root it” - worked out in 3/4 of the cases, and the ones with not rooting substans applied, nigther honey or “Root it” worked our about 2/4 of the time.
- I first tried out with Wine cutlings but alle the cutlings died – they are so difficult to get to root, and mine was quite old and had not been kept in correct storage.
- I used cutling that are easy to set roots. “Cuban Oregano”.
I made 4 with honey, 4 with “Rootit” and 4 without anything.
- I did the exact same as the above.
Every time the finish cutling were put into a “greenhouse” box, with “water beeds”(Magic soil) in the buttom. The cutlings grew into dirt mixed of 50% cutling dirt and 50% Vermuculite. All the plants were plantet into a hole, i had stuck out with a wooden needle.
After one week the ones with honey, has rotten, both ion the plant usually and also in the dirt. The other cutling were somewhat still alive - only some of them looked a bit sad - but no roots.
After 2 weeks, the score was 50% of the ones without anything was dead, and the rest along with the ones with “rootit” still lived, but some looked a bit pale.
after 3 weeks, the one with “rootit” seemed to getting stronger, exept for one of them, that were dead.
The onces with nothing on, didnt seemed much different from week 2.
Week 4. - the first signs of roots on the remaining cutlings. The “rootit” cutlings is growing and looking more green, but the Neutral ones, use their energy so much, that they are getting roots, but the plant above the dirt seems a bit week.
So conclusion - i have had more success using “Rootit” then the other methos, but since it is quite expensive when you put a lot of cutling during the year, i would perfer only to use it on the more expensive cutlings like Wine etc. or the really needed cutlings.
The honey experiment failed completely.
BUT i have not yet tried to compare honey-tapwater and regular tap water – I'll try that next, during the next year, and return with results
