Stephanotis: Thank you for your tips and suggestions. I'll give it a try. Are you formerly Goddessdreams or is that someone else? She posted and then disappeared.
Easy way to propagate
I had a thought about the florist's foam. Wouldn't it work well for mailing cuttings? I just mailed out some cuttings today and if I had some foam I would have tried it. A small cube to stick the end of cutting into moistened and put into a baggie? You could probably stick several into one cube. Haven't tried it but I don't see why it wouldn't work.
