This rooted cutting was found about 48 days after this bed was planted. The plant had been dropped along the row, on top of the ground. Not only did it survive a period of extreme heat and intense sunlight, but it produced 12 inches of new growth.
This is an excellent example of the resilience advantage of rooted cuttings.
Rooted cuttings are planted with a physiological momentum, bringing on production sooner, with subsequently lower renovation costs.
