Hello All,

I need some expert advice...

When rooting cuttings (grapes, pome fruit, currants, etc),
how do you know when to add water, and when to leave them


Dear Tom

In general the professional growers never let the soil dry
They use media which retains moisture while also allowing
air circulation and to prevent root rot.
Your media should contain an adequate amount of sand (ie: 1
sand to 1 soil )
In the case of humidity, you should maintain until the roots
form then gradually open the area for several days until the
humidity comes up to ambient

For some ideas take a look at

Comprehensive information on plant propagation from cuttings
can be found by starting your research at

For roses and other plants there is very useful information
especially on how to treat and take care of cuttings.
Even though this is a rose page the information relates well
to other plants
