Bacopa flower

Postby elizabeth24 » Sep 01, 2009 11:04 pm

I have bacopas in my outdoor hanging basket, but am wondering if I can root them, and bring even a little bit of it inside, and plant it so I can enjoy it during the winter. Has anyone done this with bacopas before?

Yes, you should be able to do that with Bacopa.

Thanks, how long does it take to root? I have some in a juice glass full of water by the window. I do not have the rooting powder.

Do you still have the original plant? Bacopa will root redily along the stem where it touches the ground. I am not sure how long it will take to root in water.

Hi alll,

I took two cuttings. One is doing fine, and is growing roots, as well as still blooming. The other is dying. They are in different glasses. What have I done wrong? elizabeth24

Probably nothing. Sometimes it's just the luck of the draw.

That's the second rule of gardening. :wink:

Rule number one - patience
Rule number 2 - If at first you don't succeed, try again. :)

I have over wintered the whole plant before by putting it in a window in a very cool room and in the spring took many cutting in soil. I lived in an old farmhouse ,so it was easy to find a cool room. coulysue

Thanks for all the info. I have not been able to post lately. I have been able to read the posts only. Every time I try and post, it takes me back to the forums, even though I am logged in. I am putting this here, incase I am not able to post this on FEEDBACK. Have a good day everyone.
