Re: [IGSROBIN] Damn, what a long day

  The only cure for propagation disease, aka propagator's itch or
propagatitis, is to do what I do: never cut back your plants, and let
them grow to be tall and leggy creatures that look like the Martians
landed them on earth to fight the War of the Worlds. My greenhouse is
full of such plants. (It's also full of little cuttings on their way to
becoming big leggy things, so I don't necessarily practice this 100
percent.) One thing I have found that works is to trim the plants when
I'm angry, then as part of the therapy for my anger, I twist and mangle
the resulting cuttings so their completely useless. Then, to assuage the
resulting guilt at destroying so many potential babies, I add them to
the compost, to feed future generations.
  Hope this helps.
