    Attached are two pics of a Victoria Gold Bells that got broken off by a royal palm frond some months ago. I trimmed the branch a bit and stuck it in a clean 2 quart pool chemical container filled with water until I got around to doing something with it. Finally time to pot it up.

    That's one way of doing it. Especially if your busy and can't get to it until later.

    By chance I ended up with 6 full baskets of cuttings recently…of Stoplight, I believe… I tried to plant some for rooting a week later, I have some in the water, and I have some to plant yet… isn't it nice to have a bunch for the experiment?? I also got a Gumbo Limbo limbs with them and they are growing leaves in the water!!!
