Problem roots

As to bottom heat, what temperatures do you achieve and can the roots actually get too hot to grow? I know of some experiments done with juniper airlayers in which they basically did not root when the temperatures got too warm.

At a constant 24-26 degree C and a demister that mist the cutting every few minutes. Jerry you vertually treat it as a big cutting.
Cheers

Hi Leong

WHat do you use for the bottom heat? is it a device you made or bought? If made, how?

We bought this heating mat commercially. It comes with sensor and heat control. The rest we install ourselve.

Leong, I reckon the mister is just as important as the heater. My Prop house in Darwin had bottom heat and a mister as well. The only time I ever had any troubles in the house was when the mister played up. My mister worked on a leaf and quite often the leaf would stick and if not found soon enough, well lets just say there was a bit of work to do :angry:
I've done a few base cuts up in Darwin, but haven't tried down here yet.

Graeme, if it is Darwin, I will just let it stay in the open. When I do it in summer, it just stay outside without anything. It works 100% of the time.
