Propagating Plants by Cuttings....

Propagating plants from cuttings is one of the easiest and most used methods of propagation. Many plants will root from just a section of a plant. Some plants will root in water, but cuttings will develop a better root system when rooted in a soil-less potting mix. Sand or perlite can also be used, especially for cuttings that need good drainage and may rot if kept too wet. Many easy-to-root plants will not require the use of a rooting hormone but doing so will assure faster rooting. Some plants, such as, citrus, may root very slowly or not at all without the use of a rooting hormone.
