Many gardeners enjoy taking cuttings to grow their own plants. Success with cuttings can often depend on creating a humid environment.

A mist bed is one way to ensure that cuttings don’t dry out but these can be complicated and expensive to set up and maintain.

You can also create a greenhouse setting that keeps cuttings in high humidity. Just place your planted cuttings in a clear plastic bag and seal the top, or in a clear plastic bin with a lid.

Be sure to keep cuttings in a cool, shaded area to avoid cooking them.

Cuttings are an inexpensive way to make new plants for your landscape or to have more to share!
