Question: How do I take care of "Myrtle" and how do I propagate it?

Answer: Myrtle (Myrtus) is a shrub and can eventually grow to five or six feet when kept in a pot indoors; it prefers a full sun to bright location, moderate indoor temperatures (a minimum of 50 to 60 degrees) and moderate watering. It can be propagated by seed or by rooting cuttings taken with a heel during the summer.
