Journal November 30, 2014 - Callitier clone
One cutting, the Callitier, had two large white roots growing from the very bottom, it has now been placed with the other small trees to grow indoors.
The Manzanillo, Tosca and Picholine cuttings are apparently still alive, but are showing little progress so far. Fresh rooting hormone has been applied to these cuttings and they have been replanted. The Chemlali cutting was discarded, as the leaves were falling off when touched; there is little chance a cutting will root if leaves fall off.
As there is room for eight cuttings under the LED grow light, I took a cutting each from an Arbequina and Manzanillo olive tree to replace the Callitier and Chemlali cuttings.
If this plant continues to grow like it is now, it will be a magnificent specimen, so I am really glad I attempted a rescue mission on this Mission.
