What temperature would be needed for leaf cuttings in water? Mine have not budded, I moved them to a waterlogged paper towel under grow lights. I still have some in room temp. water. It does get cold at night in the garage. 40s to 50s.

Mine have always budded better under 70 degrees. They usually bud within a 2 weeks - 1 month.

When I bud them in hot conditions, or in 2 bright light (for example, under the normal conditions that you would grow your CPs), they tend to take a longer time. But interestingly, when budded under hotter conditions, with brighter light, they tend to form more buds.

Here's a leaf budded under hot temperatures and bright light:
It did take over 2 months to bud
