I wouldn't like to be trying to strike cuttings at this time of the year.
Its OK down here in Australia in summer but mid winter Brrr I wouldn't
think so. Why are you trying to strike them in water? You obtain pretty
high success rates in striking mixes or even just open composts. Water is
not a very good way of doing it.
Geraniaceae is all around the world
