This unique plant has fuzzy variegated leaves. A trailing habit makes this great for hanging baskets. Leaves are 2in wide and 4in long. Plants can grow to be quite long.
Your unrooted cuttings will arrive freshly cut. You will need to plant them immediately
and begin a misting cycle to root the cuttings. This will leech the soil of nutrients, so during the propagation phase use a constant feed of 1/3 the normal recommended dosage
of fertilizer until well rooted.
For a nice 4in pot plant 2 plugs per pot in well-drained soil. The pH level should be around 6. Do not allow to stay saturated because plants are susceptible to stem rot when grown wet. Use low feed and bright light. Pinch as needed to promote lateral branching. Plant 7 plugs per 10in basket. Watch for aphids.
Cuttings vary in size between different plant families, but most can be described as tip cuttings (ivy are leaf-and-eye stem cuttings not tips) that stick nicely
in small plug trays such as the 105-plug tray we use (some varieties are better suited for a 50 cell tray, i.e. Angelwing Begonia, Bougainvillea, Setcrecea, etc.). Please do not order unrooted cuttings unless you are an experienced propagator with mist systems and proper temperature control.
