So how do you take a cutting? There is a good Fatshedera near me with large leaves that is crying out for me to take a cutting.

I have never had luck with Aucuba cuttings either. They seem to stay green for months then the leave go black and the whole thing just very slowly die.

What type of cuttings are successful? Hard wood, soft wood, nodal, internodal or heal? Something else. icon_scratch icon_thumright
Ignorance is bliss. What I don't know, wont worry me!

Do you have these Gel Rooting packs in the USA? I find they make cuttings much more liekly to succeed. I use them for anything which is important to me to get to root (expesnive / very little material / etc.)

I am sure my local one is Fatshedera and not a large Ivy...I already have cuttings of those from the same park, besides it has a black sign saying it is Fatshedera lizei.

those look awesome but I have never seen them in the states. we do have rooting gel you can dip them in but I have never seen the gel cubes like that. really would like to try them though they look like they work great.

if it has a sign it sounds like you shouldn't be taking cuttings without permission.
