Crown of Thorns from Cuttings
I'm new to plant propagation and want to know some details about propagating "Crown of Thorns" from cuttings. I live in a tropical country and now, day temperature about 26C in shade and 35-40C in direct sun light and night temperature about 19-22C.
I've already done 2 cuttings from my main plant. One cutting is 2 week old in a black plastic bag and other is 1 week old. I've sprayed the sand in that bags with a household water sprayer 2 times a day and never watered them till today. Some of the lower leaves have dropped and only 4-5 leaves remain and those remaining leaves also seem somewhat flabby and weak but the tip of my cuttiing is still green.
The question I want to know is when I can start watering and start fertilizing my plant as I have used mainly sand in the bag and so I'm afraid the plant will be starved. Some people says early watering can make the root rot. So, I want to know the time when I can water them and how much. Next, when I can move my cuttings to the light as now they all are in complete shade. Next, when I can be sure that I can move them to a pot and properly plant them.
Sorry for many questions,
Thanks & Regards,
