Can anyone tell me how to root this?Its sitting in water right now?

Chariton, IA(Zone 5b)

Just read on the Net that cuttings can be taken spring, summer, and fall and root in sand or peat/sand mix. Hope this helps.

CC, I'm fixing to (yes, that's correct) start another batch and see if I have more luck. Water doesn't work:) If I get lucky, I'll set you up in the spring.

I still have some with live parts,does that mean it rooted??It's almost been a month - ok 3 weeks

I bet so. The ones I tried in water turned brown within a week or so. I started some with rooting compound in soil this time. So far, so good.

Rooting in sand works great with Tibouchina.
