Last November I took three cutting from a hedge in Lanzarote, Canary Islands. At home I put them each in a bottle filled with water and kept them in the conservatory which is in winter warm during the day and cool at night very much like Lanzarote.
The cuttings themselves were about 5 inches long with a reddish stem and several small green stubby succulent type leaves along the length of them. Now 6 months later they are still thriving and have a good 3-4 inch long root system.
The question is what is the best compost to plant them into and how to care for them afterwards. I don't want to loose them after they've done so well initially.
