Tornado warning systems to
be tested April 23
A statewide tornado drill will
be conducted for South Dakota by
the National Weather Service between 9:00 and 9:30 am MDT
(10:00 and 10:30 am CDT) on
Wednesday, April 23. Because the
exercise is used to ensure communications and warning systems
are functioning properly before
storm season, people will see and
hear the actual alerts used for
tornadoes.
Outdoor warning sirens will be
sounded in many towns. The
sirens may not be heard inside
homes and office buildings, as
they are intended to alert people
who are outdoors away from radio
or TV.
The drill will also include activation of the Emergency Alert
System, which will interrupt local
media broadcasts. The public
should be aware that the scroll on
broadcast television and cable TV
channels will look like a real
warning, while the NOAA

Weather Radio and broadcast
audio will be identified as a test.
Local emergency response agencies may practice their response
procedures and many schools will
conduct safety drills for their students.
Individuals do not need to take
any action during the drill, but
they are encouraged to make
plans to protect themselves and
their families before storms develop. Don’t wait until the storm
is headed toward you as there
won’t be time. Information about
storm safety is available from
county emergency management
offices or visit the following web
sites: Rapid City National
Weather
Service

Obituaries
Darrel Griffith

The funeral service for Darrel
Griffith, age 84 of Faith, was held
at 11:00 am Tuesday, April 15,
2014 at the Faith Community
Center. Pastor Calvin Chapman
officiated with burial in the Faith
Cemetery.
Special music was provided by
Butch Samuelson and Arlie Hulm.
Serving as casketbearers were
Bo Griffith, Austin Griffith, Willie
Griffith, Callie Davis, Jesse
Beesley, Billie Jo Beesley, Dane
Kissack, Ryan Griffith, Erin Griffith, and Alyssa Griffith. All
friends and relatives are considered Honorary Bearers.
Visitation was held on Monday
from 1:00 to the time of the family
service at 7:00 pm at the Faith
Church of Christ.
Darrel Duane Griffith was born
Feb. 8th, 1930 in Dupree SD to
Carl and Maude Griffith. He was
born the youngest of 13 children.
The family moved to their new
ranch between Faith and Dupree
when Darrel was 3 yrs. old. From
that time on, that ranch was his
home. Darrel quit school in the
8th grade to help at the ranch
during some hard and trying
times. 
In 1950, at the age of 20, he married the love of his life, Marlene
Joyce Dore, and for 64 years they
raised cattle, horses and ran a
horse training facility. When his
father passed away and his
mother became ill, Darrel bought
the place and he and Marlene

worked, played and raised 5 children together on their 5000 acre
ranch. His passion for training
horses eventually became his primary way of making a living with
outside horses coming in from all
over the upper Midwest and beyond as his reputation grew rapidly. He put up an indoor riding
barn in 1966 and for quite some
time, his training business was
booked 2 years in advance. Darrel
started announcing rodeos for
Eddy Bachman and went on to announce for many years for various
contractors. He competed in the
bareback riding and calf roping
and went on to show his clients
horses and his own horses in competition excelling in calf roping,
cutting and reining. Many horses
he trained went on to win numerous state and some national titles
with his own horse, Miss Boog,
winning the National High School
cutting title carrying his daughter, Terri. Because of his reputation in the cutting horse industry,
he was invited to Washington, DC
by the Smithsonian Institute, to
perform every day for 1 week in a
temporary arena erected between
the Lincoln Memorial and the
Washington
Monument.
He
wanted to ride his horse up the
steps and stand beside President
Lincoln's statue to have his picture taken, but refrained due to
the amount of mounted police
present. He touched many young
lives helping them develop their
horsemanship and cutting skills.
Darrel enjoyed music and he
played guitar and piano and had
many a jam session with family
and friends in his home. Just one
more thing Darrel was known for
was his trained working dogs. He
loved to show them off whether it
be bringing in the cattle from the
pasture or performing tricks, he
never tired of discovering something new that could be taught to
them. Recently his dogs were
renowned for their piano playing

and basketball playing skills. He
enjoyed life to the fullest and was
very active in his kids’ sports activities and was always game for
a practical joke or two. Darrel
gave his life to the Lord and loved
to sit down and open his wellworn Bible every morning before
his day began. He was instrumental in leading several to the Lord
even Baptizing his granddaughter
and nephew. 
Darrel passed away peacefully
in his home on April 10th, 2014 at
the age of 84 with his family by
his side. 
Darrel is survived by his wife,
Marlene, his daughters Debbie
Stewart and Terri (Phil) Kissack
of Spearfish, SD; his sons, Jim
(Kim) Griffith of BenBrook,
Texas, Doug Griffith of Discovery
Bay, CA, Rick Griffith of
Spearfish, SD; one sister, Neva
Samuelson also of Spearfish, SD.
He is also survived by 10 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.  
He is preceded in death by his
father, mother, 11 brothers and
sisters and 2 grandchildren.
A memorial has been established.

USDA Officially Announces
Sign-Up Date for Farmer and
Rancher Disaster Assistance
Programs
Sign-Up Begins April 15 for
Livestock, Honeybee, Fruit
Grower Programs
WASHINGTON, April 7, 2014
– The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced today
that farmers and ranchers can
sign-up for disaster assistance
programs, reestablished and
strengthened by the 2014 Farm
Bill, beginning Tuesday, April 15,
2014. Quick implementation of
the programs has been a top priority for USDA.
"These programs will provide
long-awaited disaster relief for
many livestock producers who
have endured significant financial hardship from weather-related
disasters
while
the
programs were expired and
awaiting Congressional action,"
said Agriculture Secretary Tom
Vilsack. "President Obama and I
prioritized the implementation of
these disaster assistance programs now that the Farm Bill has
restored and strengthened them."
The Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) and the Livestock
Forage Disaster Program (LFP)
will provide payments to eligible
producers for livestock deaths
and grazing losses that have occurred since the expiration of the
livestock disaster assistance programs in 2011, and including calendar years 2012, 2013, and
2014.
Enrollment also begins on
April 15 for producers with losses
covered by the Emergency Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees,
and Farm-Raised Fish Program
(ELAP) and the Tree Assistance
Program (TAP).
LIP provides compensation to
eligible livestock producers that
have suffered livestock death
losses in excess of normal mortality due to adverse weather. Eligible livestock includes beef cattle,
dairy cattle, bison, poultry, sheep,
swine, horses, and other livestock

as determined by the Secretary.
LFP provides compensation to
eligible livestock producers that
have suffered grazing losses due
to drought or fire on publicly
managed land. An eligible livestock producer must own, cash
lease, or be a contract grower of
eligible livestock during the 60
calendar days before the beginning date of the qualifying
drought or fire in a county that is
rated by the U.S. Drought Monitor as D2, D3, or D4.
ELAP provides emergency assistance to eligible producers of
livestock, honeybees and farmraised fish that have losses due to
disease, adverse weather, or other
conditions, such as blizzards and
wildfires, as determined by the
Secretary of Agriculture.
TAP provides financial assistance to qualifying orchardists
and nursery tree growers to replant or rehabilitate eligible
trees, bushes and vines damaged
by natural disasters.
USDA Farm Service Agency
(FSA) employees have worked exceptionally hard over the past two
months to ensure eligible farmers
and ranchers would be able to en-

roll to receive disaster relief on
April 15.
To expedite applications, all
producers who experienced losses
are encouraged to collect records
documenting these losses in
preparation for the enrollment in
these disaster assistance programs. Information on the types
of records necessary can be provided by local FSA county offices.
Producers also are encouraged
to contact their county office
ahead of time to schedule an appointment.
For more information, producers may review the 2014 Farm
Bill Fact Sheet, ELAP and TAP
fact sheets online, or visit any
local FSA office or USDA Service
Center.

provider, employer and lender. To

Horse owners warned
of Equine herpesvirus
As spring rapidly approaches,
Dr. Dustin Oedekoven, South
Dakota state veterinarian, reminds horse owners to prevent
the spread of equine herpesvirus
(EHV).
EHV has historically been
found in South Dakota, and is
transmitted between horses in
close contact. Three forms of the
disease are recognized: respiratory, reproductive and neurologic. The respiratory form is the
most common, with symptoms of
coughing, nasal discharge and a
high fever. The reproductive
form causes abortion in mares.
Neurologic
Equine
herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1) has recently
been identified in horses in parts
of Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Horse owners are encouraged to
continue consulting their veterinarians on ways to protect their
animals. The virus has no effect
on people or other livestock. Affected horses develop high
fevers, lose coordination and
may die. Once a horse is infected
with the neurologic form, treatment is limited, including supportive care, antiviral drugs and
anti-inflammatories.
Prevention of EHV begins
with a solid biosecurity plan.
Horse owners can minimize
spread of EHV by implementing
a 21-day isolation policy when
adding new horses or returning
horses to established herds.
Buckets and other items used to

feed and water horses or groups
of horses should be cleaned and
disinfected regularly. Horses
with fever or recent known exposure should stay at home.
Vaccines effective in preventing respiratory and reproductive
EHV are widely available and
should be administered as directed by the owner’s veterinarian. Often this means at least
twice every year, with horses
that travel to events boostered
as often as every three months.
Horse owners are encouraged to
visit with their veterinarian to
determine a vaccination program best suited to their individual needs.
Oedekoven strongly encourages organizers and planners of
equine events to seek the advice
of veterinary professionals for
guidance on disease prevention.
Horses that have been vaccinated less than seven days or
greater than 90 days prior to an
event may be at higher risk for
spreading EHV. In addition to
consideration of standard health
requirements, protocols should
be developed prior to the event to
address potential isolation and
quarantine procedures in case of
an outbreak.
Keep your horses safe and
healthy. Employ biosecurity to
reduce the spread of equine herpesvirus. For more information,
visit: http://aib.sd.gov/diseasecontrol.shtm#horses.

Folks finally got a taste of
spring with temperatures up into
the 70s on Friday. However, by
Sunday those familiar cold and
windy days paid us another visit.
Cammack Ranch Supply Open
House days last Thursday and
Friday were very pleasant as far
as weather goes. It typically rains
and is quite muddy around the
community center, but not this
year. All of the booths fit nicely
inside this year so no hoop barn
was needed.
The Union Center Track team
attended their first meet in
Kadoka last week. They did well
and came home with a variety of
placings.
Larry and Sandy Rhoden attended Cody Rhoden's promotion
ceremony on Sunday in Rapid
City. Cody Rhoden was promoted

from 2nd Leiutenant to 1st Leiutenant in the Army National
Guard. Larry and Sandy examined a Black Hawk helicopter up
close while they were there at the
Guard Unit. Larry and Sandy attending South Canyon Baptist
Church where Zora Barry attends
as well as her son Albert and family.
Brandings are being scheduled
and calving season is either in full
swing or nearing the end for
many ranchers in the area. The
snow is gone and the warm days
have been luring the green grass
onto the prairies to take the place
of the brown of winter.
It is also campaign season for
many in the area. Lana (Speed)
Anderson, daughter of Paul and
Karen Speed is running for Register of Deeds in Meade County.

There are five people running for
the open House seat in District
29. They are Dean Wink, Tom
Brunner, Tammy Basel, Wanda
Blair and Theresa Jorgenson.
Gary Cammack is running for the
open District 29 Senate seat and
has two opponents. These folks
are traveling Meade County to
meet folks before the June 3 primary. Larry Rhoden has more
distance to cover in his statewide
race for U.S. Senate. He and
Sandy traveled to Huron and
Sioux Falls this week and Larry
took part in the first Senate debate last Saturday in Pierre. It
was part of the South Dakota
Newspaper Association's convention that they held in Pierre this
year. After the debate they
headed back west to attend the
Pennington County's Lincoln Day
Dinner after having been in Hot
Springs the night before. Tuesday
night covered another candidate

Cross your fingers and hope
that I can get this news typed and
sent before I have another issue
with my computer and e mail. I’ve
spent the week trying to get into
my e mail and trying to get a code
from Microsoft. Tonight I have 6
different codes, so I chose the latest one and got in! Hallelujah!!
My sister said she’s about to go
back to a paper and pencil. She
may have the right idea!
This week we were so sorry to
hear of the loss of Darrel Griffith.
What a hard working, honest
man who always had time to visit
and share a story or two. He was
such a competent and knowledgeable horseman who was willing to
pass that on to others. Our sympathy goes out to the family.
Saturday I worked around the
house wearing sandals on my
feet. Sunday we went to Spearfish
for
granddaughter,
Emma
Schilling’s, fourth birthday and I
wondered if I should find my
snow boots. Our weather contin-

ues to be up and down. As we
drove home from the Hills we
talked about the amount of
ground that is white from saline
seeps. It’s my understanding that
the large amounts of moisture
we’ve received in the past year
are responsible for these. Has
anyone else noticed them? We’ve
also talked about the homesteaders and the sights they chose for
their homes. The homestead
years must have been very wet,
with large amounts of standing
water. That would explain some
of the homestead sights that are
now no where near water. 
Beverly Hudson sent me the
following Easter services dates
for Marcus Church: Good Friday

April 20th
Services for Dennis Ellefson
will be April 21. Check but I believe the time will be 10:00 with
inurnment at White Owl, South
Dakota.

We would like to thank all the friends and family that made
it out to remember the life of an awesome man we call Grandpa.
To the Church of Christ congregation, THANK You so much for
feeding all of us lunch. The phone calls, hugs and words of support have been amazing! A special thank you to Chaundra Shone.
Grandpa really appreciated you coming to Rapid to
be with him. Thank you again from the bottom of

Cucumber selected as the
2014 Edible of the Year
By David Graper, SDSU Extension Horticulture Specialist and
Director of McCrory Gardens
Each year the National Garden Bureau selects a perennial,
annual and an edible to become
the chosen plants of the year.
This year they have chosen the
cucumber as the edible of the
year.
Cucumbers are many a gardener's favorite for eating fresh or
for making pickles that can be enjoyed for months after the garden
is put to bed for the winter. These
easy-to-grow plants don't need
any special growing conditions
except a sunny location and some
room to grow.
A little background
Historical records indicate that
this popular fruit originated in
Asia and has been cultivated for
more than 3,000 years. Cucumis
sativus is a member of the Cucurbitacea family and are related to
other common garden fruits like
squash, watermelon and pumpkins.
Cucumbers and these other cucurbits are all creep vines that
will grow along the ground or up
onto a support by gripping it with
tendrils that appear along the
stems. There are also bush-type

plants that take up about half as
much space and can still be as
productive as the full sized
plants.
You can also grow them on a
trellis or cattle panel to save even
more space and make harvesting
easier. Large containers can also
be used to grow cucumbers on a
deck or sunny patio.
Plants are usually monoecious,
meaning that they produce both
male and female flowers on the
same plant. Pollen needs to be
transferred from the male flowers
to the female flowers, usually by
bees, in order for fruit to be produced.
You can tell the difference in
the flowers by looking for the
ovary, a tiny immature fruit,
which will be located right at the
base of the female flowers. The
male flowers will generally be on
a longer stem and have visible
pollen on the anthers inside the
flower. There are times when cucumber plants may produce almost all male flowers, especially
early in the season or during unfavorable growing conditions.
When this happens gardeners

may notice that there are lots of
flowers but very few fruit to harvest.
This problem will usually get
resolved with improved growing
conditions and fruit will start developing again. If bees are not
present or inactive, fruit production can be reduced as well. A gardener may notice that some of the
fruit that does develop has an uneven shape.
This results from poor pollination. The developing seeds inside
the cucumber fruit stimulate development of the fruit itself. If
only a few of the ovules were fertilized during the pollination
process there won't be enough developing seed in the fruit to stimulate uniform development of the
fruit.
Varieties
There are some cucumber varieties available now that are gynoecious, meaning that most of
the flowers produced are female
flowers so there is the potential
for higher yields from these
plants. But, those female flowers
must still be pollinated with
pollen from a male flower. So,
some seed from a regular monoecious plant are included in the
seed packet so that a supply of
pollen will be available for all
those female flowers to get pollinated.

Page 5

Parthenocarpic varieties are
now also available. These special
types of cucumbers can produce
fruit without the flowers being
pollinated. They are most commonly used in greenhouse cucumber production where pollination
can be a challenge.
There are hundreds of different varieties of cucumber. Here in
the U.S., they are typically broken down as either pickling or
slicing cucumbers but you may
also see some further described as
burpless.
The pickling types usually produce fruit that is shorter and
larger in diameter but are harvested at an earlier stage of development, from about 2-6-inches in
length. The slicing cucumbers are
generally smaller in diameter but
harvested at a later stage of development 4-10-inches in length
but usually less than 2-inches in
diameter. However, either type
can be used for slicing and fresh
eating or be pickled.
Burpless varieties usually
have a thinner skin, a sweeter
taste and are easier to digest for
most people. Gardeners can now
find many other types of cucumbers, heirloom varieties and others from different areas of the
world. Some of these vary in color
and shape from very long and
thin to round.

Is chewing a healthier alternative?

2014 Prom: “We Run The Town”
Photos by Marcia Samuelson

By Wendy Lawrence, RN, Missouri Breaks
The use of chewing (smokeless)
tobacco is wide spread and often
wrongly used as a perceived
“healthier alternative” to smoking tobacco. Smokeless tobacco is
commercial tobacco that is not
burned. It is commonly known as
chewing tobacco, oral tobacco, spit
or spitting tobacco, dip, chew and
snuff. The amount of nicotine and
harmful chemicals in smokeless
tobacco varies by product. The
bottom line is there is NO safe
form of smokeless tobacco.
Oral cancer is one of the few
cancers that are on the rise in the
U.S. It falls in to head and neck
cancer category. Common names
for it include such things as
mouth cancer, tongue cancer, tonsil cancer and throat cancer. Approximately 43,250 people in the
US will be newly diagnosed with
oral cancer in 2014. At the stages
it is being found today the fiveyear survival rate is roughly 60
percent: however, many of those
who do survive often experience
life-long serious treatment-related morbidity, such as difficulty
speaking, eating and swallowing
and severe disfigurement. When
discovered early, oral cancers
have an 80-90 percent survival
rate. And the degree of treatment
related morbidity can be greatly
reduced. Unfortunately at this
time, the majority are found as
late stage cancers and this account for the high death rate of 43
percent at five years from diagnosis. Late stage diagnosis in not occurring because most of these
cancers are hard to discover, it is
because of a lack of public awareness.
Some think this is a rare cancer. Mouth cancer will be newly
diagnosed in about 115 new individuals each day in the US alone,
and a person dies from oral cancer ever hour of every day.
The following list includes
well-documented harmful effects
of chewing tobacco.
Addiction – As with smoking
tobacco there is a major factor relating to additions. Becoming addicted to the nicotine component
is unavoidable, and this poses
major problems for people trying
to abstain
Dental harm – Due to direct
contact of the chewing tobacco
with the mouth and teeth, the effects of the nicotine lead to gum
disease over time. Chewing tobacco contains a high content of
sugar and just as with eating too
many sweets; tooth decay can become a huge problem with prolonged use.
Heart problems – The use of
chewing tobacco contributes to an
elevated blood pressure and heart
rate. A rise in cholesterol is another know hazard.
Pre-cancerous mouth sores –
with prolonged use of chewing tobacco comes the likelihood of
“Leukoplakia”. These are small
white patches on the inside of the
oral cavity. These areas are be-

lieved pre-cancerous with a
strong likelihood of developing
into true cancer over time.
Use during pregnancy increases the risks for preeclampsia
(i.e., a condition that may include
high blood pressure, fluid retention and swelling), premature
birth and low birth weight.
Use by men causes reduced
sperm count and abnormal sperm
cells.
The screening for oral cancer is
the lease invasive and time consuming. It is painless and inexpensive, and can be done as part
of a regular dental hygiene check
up.
Smokeless tobacco (also known
as oral tobacco) has many forms,
such as chewing tobacco, plug,
twist, snuff, snus and dissolvable
tobacco. Snuff is very similar to
chewing tobacco, you may take it
nasally or oral. Snuff is mashed
up tobacco leaves with over 3000
different ingredients and about
28 of those ingredients induce
cancer. The way nicotine is absorbed with snuff is that there are
tiny bits of fiber glass or other
abrasives inside the tobacco, so it
slightly cuts your gums so the
nicotine can get in the blood
stream easier, this causes more
nicotine to be absorbed into the
blood stream, and can do more
harm directly. In general, smokeless tobacco has about five times
the nicotine than a single cigarette. Products sold in the U.S.
have no uniform manufacturing
code, not regulated and contain
significantly higher levels of cancer-causing substances.
Oral cancer signs and symptoms include:
Red and/or white discolorations of the soft tissues of the
mouth
Any oral sores or abnormality
that does not heal or resole within
14 days
Hoarseness that lasts for a prolonged period of time
A sensation that something is
stuck in your throat or you experience painless difficulty swallowing
Numbness in the oral region
Difficulty in moving the muscles of the mouth, lips or tongue
Persistent ear pain that occurs
on one side only
A sore under a denture, which
even after adjustment of the denture, still does not heal
Any lump or thickening – often
painless, that develops in the
mouth or on the neck.
The bottom line is there is no
safe form of smokeless tobacco.
Both smoking and chewing tobacco have equally detrimental
effects on health and life. Both
are addictive, unattractive, unsociable and expensive. More importantly both can lead to various
forms of cancer and heart disease.

Propagating houseplants
By David Graper, SDSU Extension Horticulture Specialist and
Director of McCrory Gardens
The long winter finally seems
to be loosening its grip and allowing for some warmer weather to
move in, melt the snow and warm
a gardener's heart in anticipation
of what might be grown this year.
However, it will still be a few
weeks before we can start doing
much gardening outside. We are
nearing the time to start those
tomato, pepper and other vegetable seeds but it's better to wait
a little longer yet, instead of
jumping the gun and ending up
with overgrown transplants at
planting time. If you still want to
start growing something now,
how about propagating a few
houseplants to get green thumbs
working and renew some of those
old plants with fresh starts for
your windowsill.
Most of our common houseplants can be propagated by using
cuttings, usually taken from the
top 2-3" of a stem. These are
called tip cuttings. You can also
take more cuttings from lower
down on the stem. For many
plants you can take single-node
cuttings but just cutting the stem
above and below where the leaves
are attached to the stem. And,
some plants, like begonias,
African violets and peperomias
can be propagated by leaf cuttings.
What you'll need
Before you get started you will
need a few supplies. Six-inch pots
work well as a container. They
can hold several cuttings and are
a good size that will fit on a windowsill or under a grow light. You
can also use cell packs, flats or
even egg cartons. Ideally the container should be at least 2-inches
deep to allow for enough media to
hold up the cuttings. You will also
need some sort of propagating
media. My favorites are perlite, a
mixture of 50:50 perlite and peat
moss or a commercially prepared
peat-lite propagation media. I
also recommend using a rooting
powder. It contains plant hormones that will help to stimulate
root formation. These should all
be available at your local garden
center or discount outlet store.
Many people have probably
rooted cuttings by just sticking
them in a glass of water. I remember rooting geraniums like
this back when I was just starting
to garden. My mother always
kept some geraniums on the windowsills over the winter so this
was the way that we started new
ones for the summer garden. This
method will work for lots of plants
but I think you will find that you
will have much better success
with a wider variety of plants if
you use a rooting media instead of
water. The roots that are formed
in a rooting media will be more
vigorous and better adapted to
growing in regular potting soil
than those that form in water.
Choose the propagating media
and containers you want to use. If

the containers are used, clean
them before using. Soaking them
in a 10 percent bleach solution for
about 10 minutes will also disinfect them and give you a better
chance of success. Add warm
water to the media and mix thoroughly so that it is moist but not
dripping wet. Warm water will
work better than cold water if the
media is really dry. Loosely fill
the container and firm slightly.
Use a pencil or dowel to make
holes about 2-inches apart and 2inches deep in the media. You
should be able to get about six
cuttings in a six-inch pot, depending on the size of the cuttings.
Use a sharp knife or sharp
pruning shears to collect your cuttings. Generally smaller cuttings,
2-3-inches long with two to five
leaves will work better than
longer cuttings with a lot more
leaves.
If the cuttings are too long and
have too many leaves, they are
more likely to wilt and die before
they have a chance to produce
new roots. In most cases it is also
a good idea to remove the bottom
leaf or two so that you will have
at least one node, the point along
the stem where the leaves are attached, under the propagation
media.
Roots most often form at the
node or along the stem, close to
the node. Dump a small amount
of the rooting powder onto a
paper towel or other surface then
dip the cut surface into the powder. You don't need to put on a lot
of the rooting powder; a small
amount on the cut surface is probably all you need. Now, carefully
insert the cutting into one of the
holes you prepared in the rooting
media. Repeat the process with
additional cuttings. You can mix
cuttings of different plants together in the same pot if you
wish; you will be taking them out
and repotting them after they
have rooted anyway. Once you
have your pot or container filled
with cuttings, give them a good,
gentle watering to saturate the
media and help to firm it around
the stems of the cuttings.
One of the most important
steps in cutting propagation is to
provide a humid environment
around the cuttings to prevent
them from drying out. Now that
you have removed them from the
parent plant, they have no way of
taking up water. So, you have to
keep the humidity up near 90 percent so the cuttings stay turgid or
full of water. The easiest way to
do this is to just cover the pot and
cuttings with a plastic bag.
The bag will help to contain
the humidity released by the
propagation media and the cuttings, allowing them time to form
new roots and start growing. You
should see some condensation
form on the inside of the bag, but
if it looks like it is getting too wet

Propagating houseplants
in there, you may want to open
the bag up a bit or cut some holes
in it to allow for some fresh air to
get inside.
Place you pot of cuttings in a
bright location but not in direct
sun. If you have grow lights for
starting your seeds, that same
setup would work well for rooting
cuttings too. Check the cuttings
every few days, to make sure they
are still moist, adding a little
water if necessary. It will usually
take two to three weeks for some
of the easiest-to-root plants like
Swedish ivy, zebra plant, purple
heart and heart-leaf philodendron
to root, while other plants, like
begonias, may take four to six
weeks to root well.
You can check the rooting
progress by giving a cutting a
gentle tug. If you feel resistance,
it is probably beginning to form
roots. You can check further by

Page 13

Continued from page 12

using a label or pencil to lift out
one of the cuttings to see the
amount of roots that have developed. You should see several roots
that are an inch long or more before you consider removing the
cutting and potting it up. If you
start to see new leaves forming,
that will be another clue that
roots have formed.
Once the cuttings have rooted
well, you can pot them up in their
new pots using regular potting
media. It is not a good idea to just
leave them in the rooting media,
especially if you just used perlite,
because it has very little nutrient
holding capacity and will not
work well for the long-term
growth of the plants. If you can
give them a little shot of halfstrength fertilizer after potting,
that will help them to get off to a
good start too.
