Tender Stem Cuttings

Fuchsia, Persian Shield, Begonia, Angelonia (summer petunia), as well as many other tender perennials can easily be rooted, and the small plants taken indoors to protect from winter cold.  After the last frost, they will be ready for the outdoors in pots or directly in the garden.

Step 1:  Choose a healthy stem and cut just below the node to remove the stem from the plant. 

Step 2:  Fill a 45 (9 x 5) cell tray half way to the top with a good potting soil mix (no fertilizer).

Step 3:  Pour about 1/4 teaspoon of Soil Moist in each cell.

Step 4:  Finish filling each cell with the potting soil mix.  Water well, then poke a hole in each cell using a pencil or similar item..

Step 5:  If  there are smaller branches on a main stem, cut each one off at the main stem.

Step 6.  Remove the lower branches on each small stem.  Do this as you go, so that you will not forget which side of the stem is the top.
