About two months ago, I took greenwood cuttings of 'George Taber',
a Southern Indica azalea. I used rooting hormone powder and potted
the shoots in a 50-50 mix of peat moss and plaster sand (no added
nutrients). Then, I put the bottom of a cut-off liter soda bottle
over the pot to act as a greenhouse. The pot is in a greenhouse
window on the north side of my house.
The shoots are still alive and seem to be growing new foliage. But
there are no roots yet. About how long should it take for these
cuttings to root?
