I stuck about 8 cuttings of Black and Blue Salvia in some potting soil. About half have rooted and are now producing leaves.
I gave up on rooting roses in water. It didn't work. So I tried again using soil instead and about half the cuttings have formed roots. I am still waiting to see if Don Juan rooted. The other two climbing species of roses did root as well. I'm so excited!!!
I had also stuck some Pipevine cuttings in water and they root as well. I've potted them up.
And I've got some Brug cuttings rooting in water, too!
Spent the weekend cleaning out my small container ponds. Repotted the waterlilies and divided some of them. Found out I still have mosquito fish alive. I had lost most of them during the winter because the pond surface froze over one cold night. Seems a few did survive and produced lots of babies! LOL! Cleaning those ponds is a messy job! Thank goodness I only have to do it once a year.
So it seems that some plants root fine in water, but most seem to do better in potting mix.
What do you take cuttings of to root? And how do you root them in ... in water or soil?
