After years of planning to try propagating plants, I finally potted
(excuse the term) my first cuttings a couple weeks ago. I plan to nurture
the clones of my mother plants (more suspicious terms, I know) until they
take root and can be transplanted.

For the record, I have four dozen rhododendron cuttings, about that many
oakleaf hydrangea cuttings, and 10 cuttings from the trumpet vine that
wraps around the screened porch. I also plan to take cuttings from the
Japanese maple by the gate.

Using methods that I got from the Internet (there is a trove of
information out there on cloning plants, recreational and otherwise), I
trimmed the cuttings, scarred their stems, dipped them into rooting
hormone and placed them in cups filled with peat moss and perlite.

The cups went into propagators I bought at K-Mart (also known as plastic
boxes for storing stuff under the bed). I misted the cuttings every
morning and kept them on the screened porch where they would get the light
but not the heat of the sun.
