Back on May 5th, I divided up my money trees because they were getting too large. Here's the old blog. http://stevespeonygarden.blogspot.com/2012/05/dividing-pachira-aquatica-money-tree.html
As expected some of them either made sprouts which means they are also rooting, and some of them rotted. It seems like the general trend is that older sections of wood are better at rooting than the new green sections.
Here is the progress as of June 12th.
June 13th: Here's a picture showing the new root growth coming off of the bottom of the division with a callus already, and the root growth seems to correlate fairly well with the amount of foliage there is. I gave these a shot of roots excelurator to help them root even faster.
June 23d. After only 11 days, the first leaves are much larger, and their growth will only accelerate in the next 2 months as it gets warmer. They are already putting out leaves and it hasn't even been 2 months yet. It seems like the larger the division, or the older it is, the more power it will have to put out new sprouts which can occur anywhere making propagation very easily.
Cuttings that made it. Just imagine how much root growth has occurred on these guys after 10 days of growth when the top growth has already gone so far.
It's a pretty big difference in 11 days eh. Here's all of them together to show how large they are already in their pots. They are pretty good for 6-8 inch long cuttings that were taken only 8 weeks ago.
September 23. After 3 more months, these guys are getting too big for their pots.
