How do you root a bougainvillea from a cutting?



Hi Mickbeme,welcome to g o y, you can take 3" cuttings of half ripe young wood in summer, put them in a sandy mixture, in small pots in a propagator with a bottom heat of 70-75 deg f, they should be rooted in about 3 weeks, you can also take 6" cuttings of mature dormant shoots in january,treat them the same way, but reduce the temperature to 64 deg f, Derek.
