Re: Thunbergia grandiflora/now Persian Shield


Real simple cuttings -
Cut below a node
Remove bottom leaves, leaving one set of leaves on cutting.
Moisten and apply rooting hormone
Stick in prepared pot*
Tent with plastic wrap
Keep out of direct sunlight
When rooted (check in about 6 weeks) pot up

* I use an 8 inch bulb pan for 7 cuttings.  Medium is 1:1 peat & perlite.
I put mine on my light stand under 16 hr fluorescent lights.
