Cuttings from Eupatorium
I am a bit of a rookie when it comes to cuttings. In fact, I tried my first cuttings with eupatorium (joe pye weed) and baptisia australis (false or wild blue indigo). This morning they were all wilted and looking pretty bad so I am not sure what I did wrong? Did I just pick plants that don't propagate from cuttings? I followed all the "instructions" out there including preparing the medium (I used potting soil), root hormone, keeping the soil moist but not overly wet, etc.
Any suggestions? Did I try my first cuttings on the wrong plants? If not, how do I keep them from wilting? Or are they suppose to wilt?
Any help would be tremendously apppreciated . . . thanks everyone
