I used some sprigs pinched from my Apple Mint plant. Yes, I know mint is usually pretty hardy & can even take over your yard, but I don't have a green thumb & it's been a rough summer of bugs & heat
Just pop your sprig/ stem into your container of choice(just like grade school Science class! It all comes back to you! Heehee) Add water. Wait & watch. In a week or two you'll see tiny roots forming.
This guy went too long waiting for me to replant him! YIKES! Kind of dark, but can you see all the roots he grew? Just in a little water! I'll be tugging his lil' fat butt outta there very carefully!
I'm trying this powder to help give my cuttings a little extra edge. They'll need it with me. I've even killed cactus and air plants! :-}
It says " just dip the root in & swirl it around in the powder. Tap off excess." I tried to tap it off. My plant made a piggie of himself! Won't let go! I may have created Apple Mint Godzilla!
Just dip all your little starters in the rooting powder, plant in potting soil, water regularly.
Well...that looks ugly as sin & a little wimpy at the moment, but if they are like any other mint I've grown they'll survive life w/ me as their caregiver too! :)
Finally... I took a chime from an old broken windchime(you can use a ballpoint pen or just your finger. But you want to get down deep in your soil). Make a hole & pour in just a teaspoon of Soil Moist
There's the lil' crystals. Cover well with soil. Repeat in a spot or 2, only if you have a really big container. These, when water is added, expand & hold water in helping keep your plant watered.
Fini!!!! (except messy, sloppy, clumsy me ....my iTouch ... Work area... and everything in the surrounding area needs a BATH!). :-}
