I was able to get 2 cuttings to root in water (~3 weeks), and potted them in Dr.Earth's Pot of Gold mix.
Also have 5 other cuttings in water that should put out roots in the next week or two. Smiling

Great banner Cal!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Thanks @GaNinFl Smiling

The banners (by everyone) have really been instrumental (for me) in discovering new plants, new friends,
& improving the photographic eye.

I'm being much more alert & observant about the plants in our garden, too.
In other words, gardening has become much more fun & rewarding since I joined the community at NGA.
Thank you all! Thumbs up
