Other Miscellaneous Cuttings
The above varigated Geranium roots much more easily than the one pictured at the top of
the page. I didn't need to use the pot in a pot method here but I did use rooting hormone.
I also have starts of 4 Daylilies in the front.
These plants were growing on the stem of a plant. I cut them off and potted them. On the
far bottom left I am starting some Mini Ivy for the next seasons container arrangements.
The two plants on the top row are Lipstick plant. The
bottom left is a Cattleya Orchid and the bottom right is
Christmas Cactus. They have all rooted! I re-potted
them in small pots.
Impatiens are easy to propagate. Just cut a 3" stem and place in water. I didn't
even cut off the buds here, I enjoy the blooms and they will still make roots. Replace
the water twice a week since debris falls in the water and it may get slimy. Roots will
appear in a few weeks. Plant them in a 2" pot when the roots are at least an inch long.
See a picture of the potted plants on the "Peak Season" page.
This Orchid (Dendrobium) grew arial roots covered by an additional layer of white
cells called velamen, which protects the roots and acts as a sponge to collect moisture.
After it was done blooming, I cut off this section and planted it in another pot.
