A Miracle Has Happened in Virginia This Week.
The pomegranate sprouts that I pruned in winter, and potted (with what can only be described as a ‘religious reverence’) - are pushing out tiny leaves!!! Nothing short of a miracle, being that this is my first lesson and attempt, to propagate ANYthing other than a houseplant!
Thank you, @alan and @Drew51, and others who have held my hand and sent me tips!
It was an experiment - so I tried different tricks to find out what worked - and to hedge my bets. Some just got misted. Some were wrapped. Some got a ZipLoc ‘hoodie’ over their pot. Some went into an almost shut clear Sterlite bin. And some went on a heat pad.
And combos of the above.
The ones in the Sterlite tote responded first. But, they were on the heat pad for a time, until I got around to learning about the tote method on YouTube - and then they went in there.
Here’s a photo of the ‘miracle’ plants!
My - ‘Unwrapped, First on the Heat Pad, Then in the Tote’ - were the first to show leaves. I hope that means that there are roots below . . .
I am so excited!
