Viola cutting

Posted by novice31m 6nj (My Page) on

I have a viola cutting in a homade pot that I use
for cuttings (it`s just a pot with-in a pot w/an
air stone and clay pellet medieum.I put the cutting
in hormone,plant it and cover it w/a plastic baggie.
It has been there for about 2 weeks and is doing
fine.(new flowers and all)But when I tried to take
off the bag the plant wilts and falls over in the
matter of minutes. really. I did this twice.
It comes back to life when I put the bag back.
How am I supposed to harden off when it wants
to die so fast.Am I taking the bag off too soon?
also, is viola a annual? The kind I am growing
has yellow,purple and black flowers I dont know
the varity. thank you.

RE: Viola cutting

I propagate violas by separating the offshoots at the roots, and planting the tiny, whole plants. I don't think cuttings are the way to do it, but I may be wrong.

Some violas, like johnny jump ups, are self seeding annuals. Sounds like you have annuals, from the colors. Collect the seeds and propagate that way.
