    Philip, that is beautiful.

    Purple, I'm amazed. Your mother in law must love you.

    Green, I too was under the impression that propagation was from cuttings. I should have googled it.

    Begonia 'Castaway' stems stuck in ground about 4 months ago look great!

    Snake plant (Sansevieria) leaves stuck in ground 2-3 months ago are making pups.

    Ornamental purslane (Portulaca umbraticola) cutting after about 3 weeks.

    Mariner's Kalanchoe (K. marnieriana) stem cut & put in soil about 4 months ago. I put it sideways on purpose so it would grow these side branches (instead of going straight up with the original tip.)

    Oh, Plumeria, what a tease you are! I got this as a cutting about this same size in Oct. 2012. By last spring, it was a pretty big plant and I put it in the ground in hopes I would finally see/sniff a bloom. It got HUGE, almost 5 ft. tall and wider than that, and had just started to make some buds when the weather started to turn cold again. I kept 2 cuttings & sent several to other people and left the giant stump to the elements outside.

    This is 1 of the cuttings that spent the winter in a pot with some Aloes and Kalanchoes. Now it's here, with some Cannas. I have only a minuscule hope that it will bloom, ever, but whatever. Maybe someday... if I keep it alive. The Cannas should at least set a good example, they always bloom...

    A spot with 100% propagated plants. Purple heart/queen (Tradescantia pallida,) spiderwort (T. ohiensis,) Kalanchoe blossfeldiana has the red blooms, K. fedtschenkoi (lavender scallops) has the blue-ish leaves, and the rest of the plants are K. x houghtonii (one of the mother of millions/thousands plants.) They propagated themselves from babies that fell off of leaves last summer and weren't killed by winter - because winter didn't show up this last time. ...and this is after sending boxes of hundreds of them to others last fall! Once a normal winter comes, they'll be killed. I'm going to have a house and greenhouse FULL of blooms this winter though! That will help with cabin fever a LOT!

    If you live where those are hardy, be very afraid of ever bringing one onto your property!

    TY, Philip & Growing! My thumb is usually dirt-colored! LOL!

    'Beefsteak' Begonia leaf that has taken root in water. Took about 3-4 weeks.

    Hoya (wax flower) cuttings are starting to grow new leaves after starting roots in water (for about 3 weeks,) then in the pot for the past couple months.

    Today I had an orange zinnia in the cut flower garden that I loved and there are so few of them, I pinched the side shoots and put them in the greenhouse to root. Hopefully they will root fast.

    Today I set out another Black Krim tomato plant, rooted from a sucker.

    A Passionflower start sent to me by a fantastic Stewie sent up two babies. I don't like to transplant in July, but they were in the direct path of the mower, so I dug, replanted in a safe spot, and watered them well. They are now in the afternoon shade provided by an old umbrella. Looks weird, but it works!
    I didn't actually propagate the vines, but if Mother Nature gives you extras it would be impolite to not take care of them.

    Hi Jane. Good work. I think Ma Nature relies on we gardeners to a very great extent now. Syd.

    Zinnias.. yay, they rooted. I had a gorgeous bright orange with hot pink edging... so I popped it into a cell pack and put a plastic bag over it and 10 days later I planted them... that was today.

    Typical gardener, I kept seeds from Noah's ark and after. I decided to toss them and begin fresh. There is a section which isn't in use and covered in clover. That's where I tossed several different type seeds. Imagine my surprise this past week when I found over a dozen bean plants. When they grow to transplanting size, they will, hopefully, become our late bean crop.
