Use a Humidity Dome to Root Cuttings

March 17, 2019

Plant cuttings need slightly higher humidity as they develop new roots. Cover all cuttings with a humidity dome to keep moisture high during rooting. Don’t overcrowd: while you have to maintain humidity around the cuttings during rooting, they also need good air circulation.

Site cuttings away from intense or high levels of light, which could burn them. Bright light from a window or a couple of feet away from fluorescent or CFL fixtures will be sufficient until the cuttings have rooted.
