The Q&A Archives: How to Propagate Plumbago Imperial Blue

Question: I have cuttings of Plumbago and I am wondering if I put root harmone
on the tips of these stems will they root and start new plants from
the cutting stem I cut? Please help

Answer: Plumbago can be propagated by cuttings. New shoots are taken in spring or early summer and inserted in pots of sandy soil. Dipping the cut end into rooting hormone will help roots form. Place the cuttings in the pots and set them in a propagating case for a few weeks (or drape the pots with plastic wrap to help hold in moisture). Keep the soil moist and provide bright light, but no direct sunlight.

Good luck with your project!
