Ok, I have my cuttings in water bottles. I see drops of water beading up inside. How much humidity should they have? I don't know if I should let some out. I have them in the window sill but the water gets pretty hot. How hot is too how?
I take the cap off now and then to let the air circulate,but because you are having really hot weather it may pay to leave it off for quite a while,though just watch for evaporation.You may have to top the water up..also make sure you don't have the bottle sitting in the sun,you want bright light but not sun..
Thanks for the tips, we're leaving soon for two weeks and I can't have the house sitter mess with the bottles of cuttings too. I think I willl perhaps put them out in the Arizona room. It's a room that has shade but out weather is over 100 degrees F right now. Perhaps I better look for a better place in the house for the bottles. I don't want mold growing in the bottles or cook the cuttings. We are in the desert and it is very dry here.
I have family in Beaumont which is very close to Galveston. I will check about oleanders in Beaumont.
If you want to trade I have a few for trading. I'll know more once I'm back in town. I want to get a lot more started once I get back too. A beautiful pink I bought this spring for too much money is Apple Blossom. I'm hoping that I will be able to take cuttings as I thin kthe tree needs to be groomed.
I'm looking for named oleander but I can find room to love all of them.
Actually Mickey, I have no oleanders. I am way into Hardy hibiscus. I just started my search for the "new" oleanders. I did e-mail a few nurseries in Beaumont, did not get any reply. My DH has relatives in Austin, San Antonio and Dallas. Everyone has left Beaumont after his brother's death. I am still searching. I will let you know what I can find.
I use to have hibiscus. I don't know who they would do here where I live in the winter. I don't have the energy to be moving them in and out. I can't deal with the white fly problem either. I may try one or two however. I didn't have a few when I lived it Chicago and they were beautiful.
Here in North Carolina they have the fast growing type at my cousins house and they are beautiful.
Got to run.
