I have two big bogenvelia and would like to get starts from them but have had no luck with taking cutings and putting them in soil. Do any of you have ideas on what may work. I hate triming these bushes and throwing away all the branches when I could give starts to friends and family. Thanks, Cindy

The easiest way I have found to root a cutting is use a rooting hormone powder before sticking it in the dirt. You can also root it in water with a little liquid rooting hormone. If you root it in water, be very careful with the roots when you plant it. The roots are very temperamental.

Hope this helps!
