Very beautiful pics dana!!! Got some advice for a newbie to brugs???? I obtained some brug cuttings and placed them in water and all but two rooted well for me and took them and put them in pots in dirt and now all the leaves that had come on them since putting them in water to root are now falling off :( Will they continue to grow if all the leaves fall off or am I "loosing" them???? Help please!!! Anyone?????

Cuttings will often seem to die down and then reshoot from below, don't overwater them as specially if it is cold weather.

I am unfamiliar with your conditions ...good luck with your cuttings.

Thanks Chrissy tells you good advise the only thing I can add is knats those crazy little flys that attack your cuttings and look for mites in door cuttings are prone to this and us over watering. Don't give up only water when there dry only when a plant has lots of big leaves does it need a good drink. Hope this helps!

THANKS everyone for the advice!! Much appreciated!! I will just watch them closely and not water unless dry and hope for the best!! Is it easier to just try and get seeds and start them from seed in the spring than the cuttings??? Have never had them either way before and am kind of at a loss as what is best to do!! Thanks again

Beautiful flowers dana!! Just love them and seeing all these beautiful pics just makes me want mine to survive all the more!!! Only problem is, if I do get my few cuttings to make it , I am going to want more !!!!!

Seeds can take a year or more to flower with your short summers I would say no then if they don't flower where are you going to over winter them? They get big better off with cuttings above the y you will see flowers that summer. Heres Gold Flame today

Only two of my cuttings have a "Y" shape to them , the rest are just "straight". Most of them developed the leaves after placing them in the water to root them(were just "straight sticks" )when I received them. But now since putting them in pots alot of the leaves seem to be falling off. Will they grow up from the soil or will they get new leaves to replace what is falling off???

And looked closer and do see a few small gnats on a couple of them--wiped them off with rag dipped in HOT water and will check daily for more!!

Upon receiving the cuttings and trying to root them-- should I have started them right in pots of dirt instead of water???

Pic of Gold Flame is beautiful!!!

Thanks Cora! sbish leaves may fall off from too much water. Hot water on them is not going to do much good either some folks use fly stickers to get the gnats or put sand on top of soil to keep gnats out. your cuttings may be taken from the top of the y they don't have to have a y it will take you time to figure this out took me a couple years to get the hang of growing these beautiful flowers. Its all a learning experience one well worth doing!

Being my first time trying to get brugs started--these are my cuttings--started them in water to root then put in pots--some are doing well(I think) and some not so well! Do some take longer to show progress than others??

For the ones that have new growth(leaves) on them--the leaves grew while they were in the water rooting--now that they are in soil some of the leaves are falling off!!

Of the two that don't seem to be showing much of anything , of course one of them is one I really wanted to grow(called Naughty Nick) just because one of my son's is named Nick!!

Any suggestions , comments??? THANKS

Thanks for the tip on an easy one for beginners(ME!) Dana!! I will have to check around and see if I can find that one!!

They will die back but will come back from roots. the others look good! Main thing is not to over water putting sand on top of dirt helps keep knats out of the soil there not good.

Sublime, looks neat and Sam's pod you are right, looks like zuccini lol.
My son brought all my plants inside greenhouse, he said nothing growing new leaves, that's scary. I may end up buying a lot from you.

Queen of tears is very pretty!! I guess it is easy to get "hooked" on them once you start getting them!! This is my first year for trying them and am hoping I "do it right" and they survive!! Out of the ones I started in water , I have two that don't seem to be doing anything, but the rest have gotten roots and have grown new leaves!! Just hoping when I transfer them outside that they continue to do well!!

Kept looking at them from afar over the years and finally talked to the older gentleman who is the gardener at one of our local churches(he has them planted all around the church--just white). He gave me some seeds from them and said "give it a shot" and if they don't work you know where to come get some more from next fall!! Very nice gentleman who loves his gardening!! Was always told they would not do well in this area , but he says otherwise and he has the beauties all around the church to prove it!! So hopefully I will have the same luck!! We shall see!

Test your skills with the freebies and see how it goes before you start buying so you don't waste your money. You learn from your mistakes it really hurts when you have money involved. This has been the mildest winter I can remember. Plants are loving it. Shooting star awesome fragrance

Taking your advice Dana!! Got the free seeds from the gentleman at the church and have paid just "postage" to a few DG members for a few cuttings, so not too much invested cost wise so far!! Biggest cost is going to be to my ego if they don't make it or do well(LOL)!!!

Dana, this is what mine currently look like. A few look o.k. as far as I can tell and some not so good!! Any suggestions for me by what you can tell from the pics????

One on right side in back (1st pic) is in water---rest in pots.

2nd pic has just the tiny little green nubs--been that way a long time.

3rd pic--these ones not doing so well--doesn't look like they will make it ????

4th pic--not so well either--leaves either died and falling off or curled up

5th pic--half o.k. - half not o.k.

some I know the names of --most do not-- does type make a difference???

Thank you so much for all your advice. It is greatly appreciated!!

too much waters bad let them dry out before watering and give just a little 3rd ones on its way out but it could send off shoot from below 4th looks like not enough light and maybe too wet the one in the water looks the best hold back on watering and when you do a 1/4 strength miracle grow would proably work. You will have fun with the seeds soak them in warm water and give them a couple drops of peroxide in a glass soak for 24 hours and plant the soil should be nuked in the microwave so it kills all the germs bacteria in the soil and rule of thumb only plant the seed down as thick as it is you will need bottom heat and keep it moist not wet and your good to go

You being in Texas maybe you don't need it either. I love fragrant plants and these are fun to grow and the rewards keep coming. Heres Tea's Libling look at that color.
