|I posted this in the propagation forum but it doesn't seem to get much traffic. Reposting here:|
I was able to get two of these at 50% off. One is pretty beat up. There is a stem that is bent badly, but not broken. I will need to cut it off. I was hoping to somehow root it and plant it with the original plant to make it look as even as possible. If I remember correctly, this type of Euphorbia has milky stems. I'm thinking it probably won't just root in water like say a coleus.
Does anyone have experience rooting this type of Euphorbia?
Thanks in advance for any help!

|In my experience, this Euphorbia needs cuttings placed in moist soil in order to root, not in water. Rooting hormone may help.|

|Thank you! I need to pick up some fresh rooting hormone. I'll do that on my way home tonight.|
I really should not care that the plant it lopsided. But it does bother me. I find it distracting.

|I have rooted these just by sticking the broken stem into soil next to the parent plant. They seem to root very easily. If you were to lay the stem on its side on loose soil, it might just root every place there is a leaf. |
