Lilac Propagation Update

No definite conclusions as of yet, but something is definitely happening to the lilac branches I am attempting to propagate.

These pictures were taken on day 10 after preparing the branches and planting them (see earlier post: Propagating A Lilac Bush).  Not sure what the white specs are all over the stems, but they don’t rub off.

Another note:  Since planting the stems in the pot of dirt, watering it, covering it, and storing it in the greenhouse, I haven’t yet had to water it.  The moisture that builds up under that plastic bag is keeping the soil more than moist enough.

I can’t wait to see if this experiment in propagation works.  For now I’ll take these little specs of white as a hopeful sign, and for this I am — Simply Grateful.

    • Sorry for the very long delay in responding. This comment got lost. Unfortunately the lilac propagation was a bust. The branches I used dried up and never rooted. Next year I’m going to try something different and hopefully I’ll get a different result.
