Q.Propagation of Swedish ivy.?

Zone Plymouth, Pa. 18651 | Anonymous added on October 26, 2018 | Answered

Is it absolutely necessary to use root hormone on the cut tip of the plant before placing it in Miracle grow potting soil. I have seedling starting potting soil and potting soil. I thought about using a mixture of these soils without root hormone. Is that o.k?

I think people are divided on this question. Because swedish ivy is easy to propagate, you can probably skip the rooting hormone. It may increase your success rate somewhat but we started propagating plants long before rooting hormone was available. Good luck.
