also how do you take cuttings



To take cuttings, preferably from non flowering shoots, but you can cut the flower stem off, cut below a leaf joint, the cutting should be about 2-3 inches long; strip off the largest leaves and stipules (these are the flat round bits on the leaft joint. Insert into a pot of seed/cutting compost mixed with perlite/virmuculite..I find they root better up against the side of the pot, plant quite deeply. Water well and put in a warm(ish) shady place to root. Do not cover the pot or the leaves will rot.
Hope I've explained this ok for you....and good luck:))
