Re: mandevilla

Hi Ceres

How are you? Don't listen to Donna. I'm not insane...yet! At least I'm not paranoid and have to keep changing my address. Makes it very difficult to stalk her*

Ceres rooting green cuttings will always be faster than woody cuttings. The problem with them are they since they don't hold the as much moisture they can dry out faster. Also they are more susceptible to damp off that is where fungus attacks the cuttings and kills them. It's better to use green cuttings in spring through early fall...not winter. Make sure they stay moist but not wet wet. I use oasis cubes but you can use perlite or moss or some combination of both. Temp is very important and if you have a heat mat you might want to keep it above 75-800. They do take a while...up to 2 months. If you have a fungicide handy (don't we all) you might want to apply some to the medium. This will help to hold back damp off.

*I'm sorry if in our age of predators, political correctness and do-goodism my reference to stalking Donna has caused raised eye brows, bunched panties and prickly heat. I have informed my team of lawyers to expect hate mail and rabid phone calls. Upon my authorization they are instructed to send out a free copy of "Yoga! Tranquility Through the Heart"

Thank you
