Q.China doll cuttings

Zone Hannibal,No | gigglygirl51 added on January 31, 2018 | Answered

We have a china doll that I repotted when we moved. We thought it died but discovered that because I put in a larger pot (was getting root bound) we were not giving it enough water. It is now alive and sprouting like crazy! However, now the bottom is woody and leggy and all the new growth is at the top. I cannot find exact directions (video) of showing exactly where to take cuttings to start over. I do not want to kill this plant!

This can be a finicky plant to take cuttings from. It can be done, though. These two articles will give you all of the information that you will need: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/china-doll/prune-china-doll-plant.htm
