Stumplings

Post  CapeCoddess on 1/17/2015, 11:08 am

Stumplings are cuttings from the tops of roots - like carrots, turnips, onions, celery, etc.. I think Plantoid coined the phrase.

Anyway, I have a few turnip stumplings growing in my window right now hoping to get seeds from them this summer.  There seems to be a few plants on each stumpling.

My question is should I cut them into individual plants and put them in their own pot, or leave them as they are? What would you do?

I would leave it so as not to bother the roots.

I suspect it is one root with branchings from the stump.  I would leave it be and not separate them.  If you have two pots of a kind you might try splitting hte root of one pot like you do an over grown perennial flower for comparison sake.
