how to propagate dusty miller

Zone Zone 10 lehigh Acres, Florida | Anonymous added on March 25, 2016 | Answered

I have dusty miller growing wild. Can I root it in water to make more plants from the cuttings, as I should trim the growth and it pains me to discard the trimmings.

You can use cuttings from dusty miller to propagate the plant, but you don't root it in water. You root it in a soilless media (perlite, verimulite, sand, peat moss, etc.)
