If coleus blumei made it here so should Salvia!
Ask Bob Smith for a luna cutting. I think he has them all. He's like the wallmart of entheogens :lol:

Day 5 is up:

They look happy. Must be the temperature because so far it has not been over 30'C and it's already noon time.
Sprinkled some rain water at the bottom of the bag. I am not worried about the water getting soaked up to the soil because i placed pebbles at the bottom of each pot.
I think the rot has stopped, well usually by my 5th day the cuttings are barely alive... I'm okay :D

I am not worried about the water getting soaked up to the soil because i placed pebbles at the bottom of each pot.

if the gritstones are inside the pot --you have to worry-- the water will get in the soil too and fast and it will stay there!
if the gritstones(pebbles) are outisde the pot and the pot sits on them and the water level does not touch the pot , only the pebbles ---it is ok. i have to mention here -> you have to have gritsones in the pot(at the bottom) aswell !

they look ok !
ventilate more often if it is hot ! and probably they have too much water there -that is why their colour is a white green ---if you have more than 3 cuttings available - just test one of them and water it less(when you water the others , just skip the test one and do not water her that day), see if the color changes to a darker green
let me see if i have got some photos to show you---- notice a tall pot in the first photo---- i left it with his own tray , not to be in touch with the water from the unrooted cuttings from the left --which at the beginning they needed a lot of water til they developed roots... you can see the color on the last two photos - it is a dark green - that is what you have to achieve -- notice the soil too --- it is not so wet ----

what is your soil mixture (composition , ingredients) ?
you need to have a soil somehow aerated , the root system of the plant is very tinny and fragile , and it can not make it in a hard heavy normal soil(forest soil)
i use one part peat moss one(or more) part forest soil (from the forest) and one part (or less) eggshells ( cause we have not got perlite on the market)

Okay, i'll place some rocks at the bottom of the bag.
Still there's just very little amounts of water at the bottom. Maybe 3 tbsp... That's why i'm not worried but having precautions is always a wise thing to do.

I placed 1 part pumice(bottom), 1 part compost(middle), 2 parts coco coir(top). It's not as loamy as clay dirt. I don't want to move the plants anymore... Don't want them to stress!

I'm close to the equator man. Plenty of sun all year!!!
I never knew sally grows at night. Sneaky little plant she is.

There's slight browning on the left leaf growth of plant 2:

If it gets worse i may have to pinch it off.

I don't even know what the name of the streets a few blocks from here :lol:

Replied on the comments you left.
I'm not going to rush things... I only said that i was going to cut them up if the growth turns to rot because that was my experience before. They turned into a black mush so fast!
I don't think this will happen this time. Thanks for slowing me down :D

It's been one week and so far only minor problems!
YEY! Milestone!

Day 8 is up:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] ... 915267374/
Taken around 12noon 31'C. It's 1PM now and very cloudy and cooler.
The growth of plant two has its leaves turning brown. Just the tip is browning. Will observe daily.
