Rooting Arctostaphylos

I am excited about the latest development on rooting Arctostaphylos cuttings in our test system. The plant stems are swelling and starting to callus. That happens before rooting. Hopefully roots will be next! The little 12 volt pump seems to work great on solar. So we’ve gone solar on propagation, yippee! Tom did a great job coding me a clock and moisture sensor in Node Red. It tracks the moisture level and mist timer and gives me seemingly infinite control of how often and how long the runs the mist. What fun! Thank you my amazing husband.

I love plants the Earth, growing things, wildlife, and domestic creatures. I have been working with plants since I was a young girl, selling wild flowers from the basket of my bicycle at age 5. I had a wholesale native plant nursery along the front range of the Rocky Mountains for 13 years. I now live in the prairie near Platteville, Colorado. I am working on more Earth friendly ways to grow plants for the ornamental nursery industry and public. Along with my husband Tom we work towards this and the betterment of self and others and and find joy in it. I love to express my self through art and am happy to share about my experiences in life. I have been through some hard things, as we all do. We are very amazing creatures, humans.
