    • Comments: Stick immediately upon arrival. Geraniums are best rooted in media in strip form to allow for maximum airflow and avoid foliage overlap. After initial rehydration, careful misting is required to optimize callus and root initiation. Mature leaves should show slight wilting at midday and regain turgor in the late afternoon under ideal mist conditions. Leaf petiole wilting indicates undermisting. Overmisting leads to Botrytis. Remove flower buds at transplanting.
