Hey!!
For me the warm time is the best time to start some Brugs.. You may want to give Sphagnum Moss a try.. Some use pots I believe Mike has a demo that is very successful and some just wrap the ends in moist sphagnum and poly.... If it is hot where you are you may just want to dip one in rooting hormone and stick it next to the mother plant works pretty good here.. Good Luck be sure to let us know what works for you!! Always looking for something new to try!

I root variegated brugs the same as any others with no problem. You might want to try using LF sphagnum. I just moisten a big handful of moss and wrap it around the lower few inches of the brug cutting and cover it or you can pack the moss wrapped cutting into a plastic or styrofoam cup and cover it (with an opening for the cutting) to hold in the moisture. I don't make any drainage holes in the cup but make sure there's no water standing on the bottom.

I started over 150 cuttings, green tip and hardwood, in my basement last winter, with about a 15% loss. My best attempts are made in the summer. I just stick my cuttings right in the ground- I live in NC zone 7b- we have sandy soil amended with composted horse manure and wood chips- so it's light and fluffy, and drains fast. I only water them when they are dry- so they don't rot- they are famous for rotting. they take right off in a week or two. Be careful with the variegated ones, they are usually patented and we're not suppose to propagate them.
