The Best Time of Day To Take Cuttings

By flaflwrgrl

The best time of day to take cuttings for propagation is early, early in the morning. The plants' natural rooting hormones are highest up in the tips of the plants in the morning, so you stand a better chance of propagation by taking your cuttings as early as you can. This applies even if you apply a rooting hormone to your cuttings.

I would like to root a cutting of my perennial two toned salvia.
I tried in water and that did not work last year.

l.what part and length of the salvia do I cut I use rooting powder
3.What type of soil in a small pot
4.what type of lighting outside/ under a tree in the shade

I have known many years ago when they used a glass jar
half way tilted over a rooting in the worked for them
but not for me..perhaps it got too hot in the zone 8 area
with humidity even in the shade where it was placed
over a pot with a cutting inside..

Anyone had success with that method and how did you do it?

thanks Sheri
