Re: Persian Shield Flower


Those're my thoughts too.  The one with no leaves left...maybe I'll let it
keep it's flower spikes and see what happens just for fun.  and maybe one
spike on one of the others with leaves.  I have so many, it's not a probelem
to experiment.  I also have another pot with about 7 additional cuttings
(taken FROM the cuttings a few weeks ago.  These are a bit of an experiment
too.  I did cuttings from cuttings last year, but this time I tried some
that were branched.  Put the V below soil level.  If they work they'll  be
bushier right from the base.
