Capensis broadleaf leaf cuttings

Recommended Posts

I started these around 3-4 weeks ago from a leaf i cut from my broad leaf capensis, just to see if i could manage to grow them. I didnt take any pics after just taking the cuttings as i wasnt sure they would take.

And after around a week they've grown to this. But what it doesn't show is there appears to be a new plant growing from one of the stems in there as well.

And they are still growing strong or they are now spring has arrived as i put them in an unheated porch over Autumn and Winter. Obviously i potted them into compost when they were big enough last year, they have been back in the house only 2 weeks and are growing fast.

I even cut one back as it was getting too leggy and just stuck the stem into the compost around 4 weeks ago after i had pulled all the dead leaves off and it hasn't slowed it down from growing.
