Hello,

I have three macrophylla hydrangea that have already rooted. I started the cuttings in December and all are doing well. My question is what can I expect from here? Growth rate ect. One is about six inches, a mophead, one is only three, also a mophead. The third is about six inches, a lacecap. Thank you.

I've done some shrub cuttings, and I think a lot of the problems with them are trying to grow them out of season or under less light than they need. Even cuttings know the light and fertilization they need.

I have about 30 azalea cuttings rooted for 2 years, and they only started thrive (and even bloom at 4") after I mimicked their seasons. And make sure the roots have room to grow in the pots. Small pots only give you bonsai plants. ;)

Thank you, that helps a lot. I will definitely be moving them to bigger pots, as I have them in pretty small ones right now. Thanks again!
