Thank you Belle, you are really helpful. I have an angel wing geranium that is growing very tall and would like to make more plants of this beautiful specimen. I will try your system and let you know how I fare.

Thank you for your article as it brought back many wonderful memories. My husband's family is from Alabama. His Cherokee relatives passed on a great deal of plant knowledge. In fact, his great aunt is one of the best gardeners and teachers I know. She is a "borrowing granny" in the best sense of the title and everything in her yard has come from cuttings or saved seeds. She uses willow water instead of rooting hormone, which is wonderful, and has never used a "store bought" pot in her life. She recycles containers like coffee cans and plastic cups rather than tossing them. Aunt Clydie makes her own "secret" potting soil as well. This woman doesn't just have a green thumb, she's green right up to her lovely 80+ year-old elbows!
