Root Cuttings

Step 1. Some perennials with thicker roots like the Stokes Aster can be propagated by cutting off some of the plants roots and cutting them into 2 inch segments.

Step 2. Place a small amount of rooting hormone with a fungicide** in a zippered storage bag.  Place the root cuttings in the bag, zip the bag shut tightly and shake the bag to dust the root cuttings with the mixture.

Step 3. Holding the root cuttings inside the bag, shake off the excess powder, then remove the root cuttings from the bag (wear rubber gloves, preferably disposable ones).

Step 4. Plant the roots in a good soil medium (part potting soil, part peat moss, part vermiculite, and part perlite).

Step 5. Cover the tray with a clear plastic greenhouse tray cover.
