|I had recently taken cuttings of an old geranium and placed it in soil for rooting. Some of the cuttings developed new leaves but the others dont seem to have any new leaves and old leaves have turned yellow. Will these leafless cuttings survive?

|Anything is possible. I'd wait until the stems begin to shrivel up before giving up on the cuttings. Sometimes they are so busy making new roots that they don't develop new leaves right away. Eventually the cuttings will either develop new leaves, or the stems will shrivel and the cutting will die. I'd wait for more signs before giving up on them.
