In October I purchased Dahlia's seeds from online nursery.
From ten seed all germinated successfully.
Then nine seedling have moved into individual pots.
They all grew so lush, so I decided to practice propagation by cutting.
I cut the shoots or stem, by 2-3 inter nodes.
And let the 'mother plant with 2-3 inter nodes from the base.
From nine plants, I only let a plant from my cutting experiment, caused by it had already popped up a flower bud, a sign of blooming.
I got more than ten cuttings, and planted them to be rooted.
Such a shame, from all cuttings, only two cuttings have grown and rooted successfully, and the others have decayed and died.
The six 'mother plants' also got rotten and died too.
It might be caused by a lots of reasons.
We have lots of rain almost everyday, high humidity and many more...
From three plants remain, two plants looks so poor...
Their leaves looks a bit curly and had copper color.
I don't know how treat them.
Any ideas please... I need your advice, friend... please...
But I'm lucky I still have a healthy plant remain.
Now... It's showing us its beautiful flower.
I'm not sure... It may Dahlia 'Dandy Mix'.
Now the plant have moved into drying area to keep it from rain.
