Taking cuttings from shrubs and transplanting them into new pots of dirt might just work or not!
The thing is, I was asked to lop off the tops of the high shrubs that run along the front room window.
So, I figured, after lopping off a considerable amount and allowing a full view outside from the window, I took only one of those tops and poked it into a pot of dirt and watered it well.
Now, I don't know if that top will grow or die, but it's worth a try.
I managed to do this before with my cast iron plant. I now have managed also to plant a seed pod from it and it also took root and a leaf came up. It did take several weeks to germinate before coming up with it's first leaf. I find it interesting that certain plants can be topped off and then that top put in a pot of dirt, watered and over time either takes root or dies in a few days.
If I can get this to work, I have a place in the back yard I want to start some cuttings growing before cold weather. But in the process of topping or lopping off some of the bush in the front of the house, I realize I need to get some window spackling and do some puttying of that front room window and give it some paint to prevent the old window from exposure to the elements when things go from hot to cooler weather sometime in October.
