Advice needed for first time to root Passiflora cuttings
Hi, I have never tried to root cuttings before. My in-laws have some beautiful passion vines on their property with beautiful red flowers. I have looked through many pictures on the internet and I am almost sure it is Passiflora vitifolia. I took 7 cuttings from the ends to the vines, each about 7-8 inches long and put them in a cup of water and brought them home within about 2 hours. I trimmed off a couple of leaves that were close to the cut ends and dipped about an inch of the cut ends into rooting hormone powder. Then I put them into small pots filled with some really rich dark soil from a part of the yard that I loosened up and mixed with some perlite to make a sort of "potting mix". Then I watered them and placed them on the porch in an area of part sun/ part shade. I have no idea what I am doing, so any advice would be really appreciated. Is there anything I have done wrong so far? What advice does anybody have to keep these alive? Thanks.
