#angels-trumpet #brugmansia #cuttings #propagation @KariSamuel Look! I managed to get one that already has roots started! 🐶 Thank you again for sharing this info. Goodness knows how many years it’d have taken me to find my own at a store. My friend’s I got this from is yellow, like your Charles. I was surprised to see these listed as not frost hardy, as the two of these on my block freeze back to the ground each year and come back blooming. Winters see weather in the 10F’s here. So happy! 😁

This is a great start, but those roots don't look viable to me. I would recommend giving the end of it a good trim, place it back in water & allow bright white roots & nodules to form. @cyndi @ShelleySnyder @columbiariver & @treefrog44 all grow them too... Ladies, advice if I'm wrong? 😘

@KariSamuel I think they are, they’re firm and fleshy, that branch was lying on the ground buried in grass, they were forming naturally into the dirt. But they might not be any good. But it’s not enough to plant though for sure. Got it in my aquarium, trimmed off some side limbs and removed a decent number of the leaves. None are wilted anymore after only a few hours in the water so hopefully it’s a good sign! 😃

@cyndi has the most beautiful one I’ve seen, her Black Current Double Swirl 😍

@heelerpup morning! What @cyndi has that you are talking about is a datura, The flowers face up and they come in some purple shades, brugmansia flowers face down and there are no purple ones so you certainly will know which it is when it blooms! Each one of those bumps on that will produce a root if it stays in water long enough, you will want to give it a good thick root system before planting in dirt. Don't hesitate to ask any of us anything if you need more help or info!💘😍

@heelerpup congrats on your brug! There are so many varieties and forms, some are more cold hardy than others... some are picky about rooting in water, some do best in dirt, I would just put about 2-3 inches of the base in water, generally where the water/moisture touches the base it will produce a root, don't want them forming too high up. When you see a good root system form, then pot it up!

@ShelleySnyder @cyndi I see that now oops! 🙈 I mistook the devils for angles, thought they were one in the same, forgive my blasphemous mistake! 👏 😨 They’re both very beautiful though for sure!

🤣🤣🤣 actually they are both called Angels and devil's trumpet, so you weren't wrong with the name, but they are different plants, pretty much the same requirements though!👍💘😍

@treefrog44 Thank you! ^_^ They took to the water very well, and have already oriented themselves to face towards the aquarium light bar. Now to wait for the fishies and the brughs do their thing. 🐠🍀🐟
