If you are a Propagator
or Grafter who collects Cuttings, Scions, or Buds,
then these simple ideas will
surely increase your success ratio.
It is critical that Propagation
Material be kept moist at all times.
Airtight plastic Snap-top Boxes
and Zipper Bags can maintain the moisture of your Propagation material,
but the air inside the Container will rob some of the Cutting's moisture.
To prevent this, keep a dampened
Sponge inside the Container. Additional moisture can be introduced by misting
the Cuttings and the inside of the Container with a Spray Bottle.
Using Fungicide instead of water
will help deter those microorganisms that are responsible for many Propagation
failures. Misting the Propagation Materials just prior to usage will increase
the protection. Dipping them in Fungicide may be even more effective.
