azalea propagation

happygirl-gardenerSeptember 6, 2006

I am a newby gardner. I was given a piece of pink azalea from a big healthy plant. Should I mist this? IF not how should I propagate this little girl.

Thanks Joan

Cuttings should be 2-4 inches long. "Wound" (remove a small portion of bark at the base of cutting) the cutting apply 0.8% IBA (rooting hormone) stick in well drained soil & mist takes 30-70 days to root
