I wasn't sure if the Rosemary plants outside would last all winter, so I wanted to see if I could get some sprigs to grow inside. So December 7, I planted these:
10 Lovely Little Rosemary Sprigs
I just pulled some random sprigs, dipped them in rooting powder from our local Co-op, and stuck them in glass jars with soil from a bag and a little cardboard for drainage purposes. As a fairly new gardener, I was completely naive and optimistic enough to think this may work! Obviously, I have a lot to learn.
One day, we did find an exciting new development: Mushrooms growing around one of the sticks.
So, we are now down to 2 plants.
Okay, in full disclosure, the left sprig may have had a better chance if I had not pulled it out to see if there was a root. And we couldn't tell if it was fuzzy dirt or a new root, so I stuck it back in. That's why I think only one of these may live.
Have you grown plants from a sprig? Any advice appreciated!
