Root brugmansia cuttings


I have a couple questions I need help with please. First, is the brugmansia and angel trumpet the same plant?

Next, I have some cuttings of brugmansia/angel trumpet and would like to root them, can some one please advise me on how to do this? What do I need for potting soil and what conditions do they need heat wise, light, water? Thank you for the help.

Yes they are both the same .. as datura and devil's trumpet are the same. I find the best way to root brugmansia is with a bubbler. I did thread on how to - here is the link:

Brugmansia Cuttings


Great info. Xeolyte,
I have been starting mine in water, but not with the bubbler. It would definitely help oxygenate the water. Going to try it.
When I first started taking cuttings, I found a website that helped me quite abit, as I did not know of anyone to ask.
www.brugmansia.us/startcut.shtml
I found that the thicker pieces of the branches did better for me than the tip cuttings. I put them in a jar of water in a low lighted spot and in short time there where the white nodules starting. Then I would plant up into 3-4" pots and water in. Sometimes on a heat mat, others times without.
I had read that, one should pot up when nodules first start and not to wait until there are long roots.
I am going to try the bubbler as I had one from an old aquarium.
Just have some on the go now. Going to part with my old specimens I think.
They are about 14yrs. old now and the ones in there second year seem to flower abundantly and do not require that much space in winter.
Great topic,
RC

Thanks RC, I will do this for now till I can get a bubbler going later.

That is interesting about potting them before they get longer roots going. I have heard this on other things also as water roots tend not to be very hardy roots and often can make for a weaker plant. RC could not get the link to work.

Thank you again RC and X, such great info both of you.

Yes, Brugmansia Growers International (BGI) is a wonderful site. Lots of info if you want any advice on anything, specially on brugs. I am a long time member.

I simply put all the cuttings in plain water at least 1/2 an inch to one inch and chance every couple days.

The International Brugmansia Society (iBrugs) also has some great info on how to root cuttings in water and soil.

Here is a great "How to" article to get you started -
