One of my crotons I grew from a cutting. It has grown so much. I love how different the leaves are compared to other crotons😃 #croton

It looks superb flanked by the #variegated umbrella plants. #fabfoliage. My attempt at taking a cutting from my Dad's croton like this one failed. I'll have to try again.

What are your tips for striking a Croton cutting successfully?

@ausgardentags I start with a 6 to 8 inch cutting and remove all but the top 2 leaves. Most of the time I simply put the cutting in water and place it on my kitchen windowsill for a few weeks until it has rooted. I have had them root with and without root hormone. I prefer water rooting rather than soil rooting because it won't let the cutting dry out. After a few weeks I pot the cutting up and let the growing begin. Crotons are super easy to propagate by cuttings. Thanks for asking😃

Kyle, have you ever tried this method on hibiscus?

@novicegardenlover I haven't tried this with hibiscus. A while back I tried some hibiscus cuttings in soil but they did not ever root for me. Next time I will try water and see what happens😃
