Mexican oregano as I know it. I bought a couple of plants that come indoors in the winter here. It did bloom and produce some seeds and I'm wondering about sowing seeds. Never thought about cuttings. Interesting question.

I have read that they are almost impossible to grow from seed. I have tried many times, but if you get them to grow, let me know what you did.

Ach - I didn't save but a few seeds that I let fall on the soil surface in the pot. I did read that very fresh tip cuttings have to be used. I also wonder if a branch still attached to the plant can be manipulated to be pinned to the soil surface would sprout any roots.
