REMOVE THE UNDESIRABLES to prevent fungal attack

Some cuttings won’t make it, that’s just a fact. You need to recognize which one’s are not going to make it and remove them. This prevents a place for fungus to grow and spread, and allows you to put a new cutting in the dome a.s.a.p. The plant leaves should remain rigid (maintain turgor pressure). You want rigid leaves because this means the plant cells have enough water. Leaves will wilt/ droop when the cells inside get smaller due to a lack of water. If the leaves start to wilt, or curl over or under, the odds that you cutting will make it go down.

Good Growing,
