Hope I am in the right area to post this.
We bring in several plants every fall...
and TRY..to keep them alive,
We have but one window that receives good light...so, that window is WAY over crowded..They "survive" but they far from Thrive.
so, thinking I'd reduce the numbers (and be able to SEE out the window) I took cuttings of Begonia, elfin inpatients, Rosemary, thyme.
The rosemary cuttings did fine..the others failed..
What went wrong??
too much humidity (I had a domed flat)
too little humidity
too much or not enough light ...I placed the cuttings under a fluorescent light fixture (2 40- watts) and left it on..well I didn't have a timer
so, I have not taken the original plants out of the window yet...can anyone tell me where I went wrong?
It would sure help, I could ditch the HUGE plants and I could see south..and the wife..would stop mumbling about my failure .
