I took a hardwood mulberry cutting this winter. It's inside under a skylight and has grown some buds which (as well as already present buds) are now breaking into leaves. It might be just saved up energy in the stem though. I fear the leaves might suck the cutting dry. I keep the ground moist and mist the cutting whenever I'm home and see the hardwood has become a bit dry.
Now that leaves are forming, should I provide a more powerful light source? Indirect, more direct or LED grow light to (hopefully) promote root growth?
I read a lot about how to start the cuttings but nothing about this stage.
