Q.Bacopa Great Violet Magic

Thank you so much Downtoearthdigs for your very speedy response and for the good news contained. Another question if you will, as it may be obvious I am a novice at gardening, so that being the case, how do I take cuttings and when? The plant I purchased was in a med. size pot.

Cut 2 to 4 inch stems from your actively growing Bocopa plant.

Remove the bottom leaves and dip 1 inch into rooting hormone and place in small pots with half potting soil/sand mixture.

Moisten the soil and tamp down the cuttings into the soil mixture.
Place the entire pot into a plastic bag and tie shut.
Place your cuttings in a warm and bright indirect light location.
Check the cuttings daily and mist if needed. Avoid direct sunlight, as this could burn your cuttings.
Your little cuttings should form roots in 4 to 6 weeks!
