Help! Save the Mandevilla!

dan_the_mailmanOctober 5, 2008

Yep, this is way off topic, but I need some help. I've got some mandevilla cuttings to use for plant starters, but now I find I'm out of rooting powder, and the local stores are all out for the season. Does anyone out there have access to some? I'll gladly pay for it, plus the shipping! And, once these cuttings have started to root, will more than happily share them. The mandevilla plant I have is a dark red, I'm not sure of the exact name of it, though I can find out when I go back outside.

Dan,
I have some stashed, I think. Let me check when I get back from church.

OOPS! Almost forgot to say how much I need... I could use about 1/3 of a cup of powder.

I have a bottle, Dan. I haven't used it much, since I kill cuttings anyway. :O)
I can send it to you, just let me know if you want it!

Until you get the rotone, crush up some willow branches in water and use that, willow sap is the active ingredient in most rooting products.unless I'm too late and you already got your powder. did you take cuttings from lowes? they have them for sale. good luck

I received a plant from one of my mail customers. It's a beautiful plant, and I'd like more of them, hopefully I can get them to bloom during the winter. thanks for the advice carol, I'll get some willow today.
