When you look at a lovely bouquet of fresh cut flowers and just think, "Can I immediately disassemble this and propagate these flowers?!" 🤦‍♀️

Yep.

Of course, the last time some gave me a bouquet with hydrangeas, I actually tried it.
If your jade plant looks happy, put down the watering can and walk away slowly.

You can propagate the roses in bouquets.

I'm totally trying it! Just ordered rooting hormone for the first time.

Skip the rooting hormone.

I thought of another: Carnations

Guys, why is it that whenever I try to root cuttings of any sort in anything but water, they get all moldy? What am I doing wrong? I followed the method in the above video link exactly.

She started hers in late FEB, season for things to begin coming back to life. Potting soil holds more moisture than other mixes- you saw the white spots in her dirt-perlite to assist in draining. I have so much humidity I dare not water my pothos at all- it loves 80* and above heat with moderate humidity. If I water in the summer, I sit the DEEP pot into about 4 to 6" of water for up to 12 hrs, remove it then ignore it another month, but my avg humidity is 60% to 90% and it gets water thru the leaves apparently. Light Misting would work if the cat will leave my mister alone, chuckl
So many roads to take, choices to make, and laughs to share!

Try to make the environment like a greenhouse, or Virginia in July. Hilarious!
