When the stage indicated is reached we have an eye no longer, but a young plant, which can be induced to develop into a planting cane without a great deal of difficulty. The first thing is to give it more room, and by the time it has made a pair of leaves it must be potted singly. Crock some 4 inch pots, fill them to within 3/4 inch of the rim with a mixture of loam 3 parts, leaf mould 1 part, and sand 1 part, and give a watering. Water the soil in the large pot, and after it has drained lay the pot on its side and remove the plants one at a time. Place each in the centre of a 4 inch pot, and make the soil around it firm. The plants should have a genial growing temperature of 60° to 65° by night, rising naturally 10° or 20° by day, especially with sun heat. If well watered when the soil approaches dryness, they will soon fill their pots with roots, and when these show at the drainage hole the plants should be transferred to 6 inch pots, preserving the ball of roots and soil intact, and pressing the fresh compost firmly round the old. This treatment will ensure vigorous young canes, which will be many feet long within the year.
