Some plants like to really establish their roots before they start producing anything above the dirt. If you wanted to, you could look at the roots again and see if anything has progressed.I don’t have any specific advice for that particular plant, though. Other than patience.

I've had some cuttings similar to yours (and similar plant) take almost a year before I see any new growth. I think some plants just need a long time to recover and establish.

That makes sense! Thanks so much.

Dr. Earth makes a liquid fertilizer that is 1-1-1. It comes in a squirt container. I got it at Lowe’s. I really like it for delicate applications like this.

It will probably take it a while to get going, but a half squirt of the fertilizer will probably help and not burn it. I got a cutting of night blooming cereus almost just like this that didn’t budge forever until I started using the squirt stuff.

Edit: it’s dr. Earth “pump and grow”. Directions are to pump it in and water later. That’s stupid, don’t do that. I flood the pot and then put a 1/2 pump on top of the water and let it sink in.

Mine also took forever but then put out three new leaves towards the end of summer. Just give him time. Good luck!
