How to prune my plant

ryecooder(6b)April 2, 2012

Hi can some please help me with my plant I was thinking of cutting that long shoot, can I cut it off and make cuttings out of that piece ? and how many cuttings would I get out of it. Thanks for any help

Hi Ryecooder-
Yes you certainly can! You can take 8 inch cuttings. Plant them in a fast draining moist potting soil and water sparingly. Give them plenty of light and they should root in a few weeks. Let them go dry before watering again, because they are prone to rot. Fertilize when new leaves appear. Good luck!

Actually, I'd cut that whole branch off to where the new growth is growing straight up. You want your brugs to grow vertical. Best wishes and welcome aboard! :)
