Hi, I took some cuttings from a fuchsia and a dianthus a few weeks ago. None of them have grown any roots but but they all appear to be perfectly healthy and alive, in fact one of the fuchsia cuttings has two flower buds that have slowly been expanding.
I didn't use root hormone as I read it was unnecessary and I didn't have any anyway. I've had a plastic bag over the dianthus all the time (taking it off every few days to wipe away condensation and ventilate).
Surely they should have rooted by now? Is rooting hormone absolutely essential?
