Cephalotus Propagation via its Flower Stalk . . .


Recommended Posts

Here are a few "Hummers" plants that had been grown from its flower stalks back in 2010. One of them has "miraculously" sent up its own flower stalk this Spring -- the earliest for any Cephalotus I have ever grown . . .

I have had a few leaf cuttings put out flower stalks when less than a year old, so it is not a miracle, just a good grower. The first one that did it, then put out three flower stalks in its second year. It produced its first flower stalk after I had split the original growth into three plants.

Hi Marcus,

I know full-well that there's nothing miraculous about a flower stalk on a leaf cutting or planted flower stalk; only, it was far more common, in my experience, with rhizomal divisions . . .
