Growing Hosta Plants From Starter Plants in My Home Greenhouse

Starting plants from root cuttings in early spring is a great way to save money and grow more plants. In the post today I share growing hosta plants from starter plants in my home greenhouse.

Hosta Plants Started From Root Cuttings Video

Video recorded live on Facebook.  Be sure to follow me to see all the latest streams.  I couldn’t stand to see my old home greenhouse sitting empty.  What was I thinking?  Things grow so much easier and carefree in my dome and here is the proof (video below).  I’ll post a video later this week from the 20′ Geodesic Biodome so be sure to follow this blog.  I was very nervous living the greenhouse for a few days in Mid-May as you can tell in the video.

Sunflower Challenge UPDATE

Check out my sunflowers growing happy with the hosta plants in my greenhouse.  Soon as the temps start to rise everything MUST get outside from this growing space or they will fry!  Find out more about the #SunflowerChallenge2019 on my site featuring video.

Tips When BUYING the Hosta Plants Root Starters

hostas and bleeding heart

When you purchase the plants try to get a look at the roots that are in the package.  If it feels dry or smoochy – chances are it is dead!  It is best to open the package of hostas and check out to see if it is dried out or rooted.  Later in the season, the stores will make these packages down cheap to make room for new plants.  It is super important to check that plant out before purchasing.  The store manager may not like this… so make sure you let them know what you are doing before opening the package.  It will save you time returning the hosta plants once you get it home to find it is dead.   I NEED TO DO A VIDEO OF THIS… stay tuned. 

Photos of The Hosta Plants Root Starters

I have a HUGE box filled with these sleeves from the bulbs, tubers and root plants.  I’ve decided to take images of them all so I can find them digitally. It is best to save images on a photo sharing site or just keep a copy on DVD that you can easily access.
