First try at overwintering cuttings inside
Before everyone starts hollering at me about this being a salvia forum and it is Im just a little bit proud of my effort at this with pics to show my progress. The cuttings are from cuphea shumannii which I found for the people at the hummer forum and this plant was popular and I wanted it again so I ran my experiment. In the first pic it shows the cuttings looking a bit weak and puny , but as time went on they became stronger and needed cutting again, judge for yourself. I decided to wick the cuttings in soil so I wouldnt worry about how much water to give them and it seems to be working. I dont know if the small cutting will root but its part of my experiment. Yes, I am giving them a wee bit of plant food, wonder if I should back off on that.
