Q.

training shrimp plant cuttings

Zone Okanagan, BC, Canada | wklassen added on September 5, 2015 | Answered

How do I train rooted shrimp plant cuttings to braid around a stick? My braided shrimp plant cuttings have now taken root, but are only about 10 cm tall. How and when can I train these cuttings to braid around a stick/pole for the braided effect? Thank you very much!

They will not vine or attach to a stick or support on their own.
You will need to braid or attach them. You can purchase plant twisting wire at local garden stores. It can be cut in small sections and used to attach the stems.
