Any new updates on these? I’ve just planted mine the same way and am awaiting results. Thanks for the great post.

An update. So I originally had these in some generic potting mix soil and just inside clear bins outside and nothing was happening for almost a month. I recently moved 11 of them into their own pots and with plastic cups over the top and on cinder blocks and in Miracle Gro Moisture control potting mix. I moved one into a pot with plastic cup on top and onto a heating pad in the kitchen window (changed out the soil to miracle grow as well). The one in the kitchen tonight started sprouting leaves after about 5 days. I’ll check the outdoor ones tomorrow. I’ve been watering them all every other day to keep them moist as well. I am optimistic at this point, and believe the potting mix / heat underneath / cup combo is possibly the magic formula. Thanks again to Tony for this post. I’ll keep this updated.

Great, All my rooted jujubes from last year are growing fine. I just transplanted from the pots to their permanent location a few weeks ago. Btw, if they roots for you then just make sure you overwinter them in a cold storage for the first season just for insurance. If I did not stored them in my Tornado shelter this past Winter with the -20F then they would be gone.

An update. These are hardwood Shanxi Li cuttings. Nothing was happening outside so I ended up moving all 12 inside onto a heating mat and running a $30 square led grow light over the top of them 18 hours a day in a western facing window. So far 4 of the 12 are growing leaves and I believe a few more may be soon. I honestly don’t know if they are rooting yet but i’ll just let them grow as many leaves as possible before moving them. I did some cherry cuttings outside in a plastic bin and they grew leaves then died without putting out any roots so hopefully these will fare better. Goji have been easiest so far and have a high rooting rate. No luck yet with mulberry cuttings yet, maybe they just take longer.
