Thumbs upGlad that it's working so well for y'all -


Many thanks
I learned about this method on the internet myself and I love sharing it with others.

While it is not appropriate for all plants, it is still far-and-away my favorite way of propagating a great many of my plants.

Zuzu thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us!
I would like to ask you, have you ever tried to propagate brugmania cuttings with forsythe pot?

Thank you so much
Marianna

Thanks Scott and Marianna.
From the first time I tried the Forsythe pots myself, I just loved them,
and felt sure that others would too, so I've been spreading the word.
It's similar to some other methods I used, but this way just brings it all together so effectively.

No, I have never used the Forsythe pots for them, never actually thought of it to tell the truth.
My habit with Brugs is to let the cut stems stand in some water for a brief period,
and then to move them directly into potting medium when I see the first signs of rooting.

I don't grow too many different Brugs, and I just treat 'em all pretty much the same and hope for the best,
it's the "natural attrition system".
Those types that don't like the conditions which I can provide don't last too long with me,
but one of our members, karmahappytoes, is a total whiz with Brugs,
and she truly knows all the ins and outs of which ones respond best to which conditions and how to successfully propagate each.

I want to make Forsythe Pots but am having trouble locating vermiculite. Apparently where I live, Lowe's and Home Depot don't carry vermiculite any more. Is there something else like perlite that can be used instead?

I couldn't find any in my town either. I had to order mine on line...and pay shipping! woohoo! (NOT!) I hate shipping! Anyway, when I went to a bigger sutherlands in a town almost an hour away, they had some. Maybe these stores could special order it for you?

Yes, my Lowes will order stuff for me if they can get it. But they do sell Vermiculite here so I made a pot.

I have it in the greenhouse with 8 apricot cuttings, a rose cutting and a spirea cutting and ALL are rooting already. It's only been about 10 days.
Thank you Zu Zu. It's always been trial and error with alot of cuttings for me.

Still trying to find someone with a hydrangea bush I can beg a cutting from around here....

So glad it's working well for you Frugal Gal!

My Lowe's still carries Vermiculite, so I must assume that it's still available from their master warehouses,
I do think that those who aren't finding it in their Lowe's stores should ask if they can get it in,
or transfer some in from another store.

SmileRe; Forsythe Pots


I think I am doing something wrong, I keep my pot in a clear pot saucer and I have to keep dipping out water out of it when i keep the smaller pot filled,,if I dont it will eventually go all over my counter top,,so what am I doing wrong or is it suppossed to do that,,my pot is 8 inches and the clay pot is 3 1/2 inches,,,I checked the duct tape and it is still sealed but within the day or the next day it is well down to 1/3 water in the clay pot,,leave it to me to do something wrong with something so simple as this pot...lol..I welcome any suggestions if I am doing something wrong,,,also I forgot to mention,,I soaked the vermiculite down real good til water was running out the bottom before I put it in the clear saucer and inserting the clay pot in the middle,,could that have anything to do with it,,,what do I need to do...thank you for your time and kindness,,take care God bless you and your loved ones,,Cassie
