Anyway, usually I root them in water first and then transfer them to a pot of soil, but I thought for the sake of experimentation I'd try rooting a couple in water and a couple in soil, to see what happened. Interestingly, I had similar success rates. I started with two of each, and ended up rooting one of each successfully. The other two rotted.
Got that? Two rooted, and two rotted.
|Before putting this Brug away for the winter, I cut off this awkwardly placed branch and took some of the small bits and pieces off to root them.|
|I know this one rooted successfully in soil because it has started producing new leaves. See the leaves on the right that I cut in half? That's all it had originally when I put it in the pot.|
|Here's the one that rooted in water, it's all potted up in soil now|
Brugs are one thing I've had success rooting. I've tried rooting lots of things, but it doesn't always work. I have a few other things in the greenhouse coming on, but not all were successful.
Have you tried rooting cuttings?
