Equisetum telmateia Ehrh. var. braunii (Milde) Milde - giant hors

Can someone tell me how to root this. I have 2 cuttings 6-8 inches long and would love to get them to grow. Thanks in advance for any info.

It should be fairly easy.
Probably any commercial mix that drains well but holds water or just plain sand.
Does it have a growing tip at the base of the cutting?
If there are no roots or apparent growing tip you may want
to set it into a bowl of water in a shaded cool spot and
see if it roots out.
If it has roots then I generally plant that part of the stem with the roots buried about an inch into the soil mix.
and water daily or every other day.
I recommend keeping it contained or grow in containers only!
Or they will end up becoming an unwanted visitor in your neighbors yard!
