Often people that grow bonsai and in particular, maples, will wonder whether it is possible to grow them from cuttings. And the first question of course is then: Rooting the cuttings.
I have made a little video on rooting Japanese Maple cuttings. Please take a look and let me know what you think!
In short, the steps are:
- Trim the maple
- Collect branches with 2 nodes of semi-hardened material, leaving only the top 2 branches
- Dip the lower node in rooting hormones
- Place the cutting in a suitable media (See video!)
- Shield the container & cuttings from wind and keep moist (Special trick in the video)
