nope, I kill stuff like that! Can not grow anything from cuttings, not very good w seeds either.
That is cool though, do you have pics of some of the ones you've grown?

What a lovely idea. You could also do the same from wedding roses and gift the plant back to the (hopefully) happy couple at an anniversary.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

That's a great idea, or a baby born give the parents the plant.
