Fuchsia cuttings

Posted by Michael4052 none (My Page) on

My first year in taking cuttings for my Fuchsias, seems to be a total dissaster as 85% of them have lost all leaves and the stem left mostly fur up. It happens both to those grown in small or large propagators or open to the elements of the greenhouse, I have used some with rooting powder and without. I have had success with rooting in water, that's not a problem apart from the resulting plants are thin and leggy.
Any ideas please

RE: Fuchsia cuttings

How long were your cuttings? Pieces with only two leaves root very easily. Just pinch out the end of a shoot.
