RE: root cuttings

Hello pinkflower744. Yes, you can root the cuttings. I finally had success doing so following user Melody26's advice. I have copied what she said she had success with in another thread here:

'This is the way I did.
The cuttings about 6' long. Dust cuttings with rootone and put them in an opened box for 4 days inside the house. Place the cuttings in the moist rooting medium. Firm the soil around the cuttings and water again. I have 3 pots. One of them used HD top soil. Another one used Lowes top soil. The other one used Lowes top soil with half perlit. Leave them in shade for 3 days. Then move them to direct morning sun for about 4 hours a day. Water them every other day and everyday in hot days. They took about 8 weeks to root and all doing fine. They are all in full sun after rooted. '

Hope this helps!
