I planted pine seedlings late in the year (September) and then did the root cutting around December. Yesterday, I dug up the pine seedlings to repot them, and I noticed that about 75% of the ones that I did the additional cut on didn’t develop any new roots. They actually still look alive though, so I’m hopeful that they might make it through, especially as it is warming up. Do you think I should:
- Do nothing and wait until they start rooting (or wither/die) or
- Put another cut, dip in rooting hormone, and re-pot?
Thanks so much!
