Poinsettia Plants
Q.

can poinsettia broken stems root in water?

Zone 32312 | catn1797@gmail.com added on July 28, 2018 | Answered

While repotting 4 lush green poinsettias into a larger container a branch got broken and started wilting. Misting didn't help so I immersed the the whole branch in water and it revived. Should I now propagate the branch or continue to try and get it to root in water ?

Whether you choose water, or soil... You will be able to get it to root. Make sure to use a good rooting hormone, or aspirin and honey. These will all stimulate rooting.
