Propagating itoigawa cuttings, what next?

Hello friends!

I’m currently having some success propagating a cutting from my imported Juniper. I’ve got two cuttings in a nice and humid setup, getting sunlight for about 2 hours a day. The roots are actually starting to come out the top of the Akadama as they grow which is a good sign (I think?), but does that mean I should move it into its own pot now and out of its humidity set up, out with the established trees? Or does it need to be kept in its humid set up for a while yet? It’s been about 8 weeks since I took the cuttings. Don’t want to rush into moving it, but don’t want to leave it too late either. What is the general timeline with this sort of thing?

Wee humidity set up

The root escaping the safety of the Akadama.

Should probably mention that I’m in Scotland.

Thanks in advance!



Hi @Aladdam,
If it has roots, it shouldn’t need the bag anymore. Pot it on when to roots have filled the pot.

@Aladdam Did these survive the summer and transplant?
