    Today I checked the log cutting that Lee gave out at Phils 2 weeks ago. I placed in a pot and placed in a bag, I see 3 green sprouts on the log now. Do I leave it bagged? Do I need to remove the bag now? Or?

    Scott,

    You could leave these bagged still for another 1-3 weeks if you want. As long as the soil doesn't stay real wet and heavy while bagged up. I brought my pot home and just placed it in my seedhouse, which is just a small shadehouse, and their starting pop out with new sprouts as well. So either way,your on your way.

    Mine is doing that without the bag. If it had leaves, I'd try to minimize the transpiration. Sticks will root in this heat with or without a bag.

    Moose,
    Harold Lee brought a bunch of cuttings to share with the society at last meeting. There were also several auction plants that were unrooted. I bought one, ID is unknown. My stick is also throwing a lot of new growth too. I am using the baggie method for both. So far so good.

    It has a slight Royal Horseguard look doesn't it?

    maybe colorwise but the RH has semi-oak. These are all narrow.

    I really wanted wanted one of the auction plants, but I thought it best to let the more experienced members get them. Maybe my luck is changing on rooting Crotons now. I accidentally broke my Queen of Siam back in June, stuck it in the ground with no hope. It now is throwing new growth.

    I'm happy to report that both my auction cutting and the freebie are both alive. Leaves aren't nearly as mature looking as above but it's chugging along. I think it was ID'd as Dr. Alexander

    Looks nothing like The Moth that is pictured in the Croton Wiki.
