But I have a couple of really nice pink ones and I would love to start them using the plastic wrap/sorghum moss/ soil, etc., and wonder if there is an easier way than that?
I have some nice healthy shoots growing from the bottom trunk of the tree, maybe about the width of my pinkie finger.
My method is so time consuming and the drawback is already we're getting into the 90'sF and extremely dry conditions.
Any suggestions? I root my Gardenia shoot clippings in water and they are from a "fork" branch, immature growth and they take maybe a couple of weeks. The Gardenia is altogether different in that there is bark on the tiny cutting branches. The Crepe Myrtle have green shoots or what I want to use is the shoot.
