Clarifications to FAQ on Propogating Fuchsia
I bought a fuschia this week, and while transplanting it, broke off a branch. I decided it was a good opportunity to try to propogate some cuttings, so I took cuttings from the broken branch. I've read the FAQ, but have some clarifying questions.
"Soft-tip cuttings are the best" What is a soft-tip cutting?
"remove cutting from stem just underneath a leaf node" Should I strip off those last two leaves, or should I stick them into the compost?
"place in a well lit situation , but not in direct sunlight" Would a north-facing window provide enough light?
Lastly, the fuchsia was is in bloom, so many of the cuttings I took had buds on them. Should I remove these buds? Is there any chance they will put out roots at this stage?
