Why is my cuttings drooping?
Wilted cuttings are the result of increased transpiration from decreased humidity in the propagation environment. Most often, we refer to humidity as relative humidity or the proportion of water vapor in the air equated to how much the air could hold at a given temperature.
Is it normal for cuttings to wilt?
Cuttings. Rooting for most cuttings occurs at the nodes, so the lower leaves are stripped from the cutting where the roots emerge. There are only a few leaves that remain on the unrooted cuttings because the leaves transpire water which can cause the cutting to lose turgidity (wilt) and possibly die.
