Rooting Fenestraria toes?

Postby Shmuel » Tue Aug 25, 2009 11:40 am

A bunch of Fenestraria "toes" got knocked off during transport. No roots and the breaks are drying. I hate to just throw them out.

Any chance of them rooting or is it just a rediculous thought?

I have had a similar thing happen to my Fenestraria.

I am wondering if this worked for you??? :)

No roots. The "toes" just withered up and died. I guess seed or division is the favored method of propagation.
Good luck to you.
