Q.Rooting Geraniums

Anonymous added on April 6, 2011 | Answered

I have a lot of cuttings from geraniums, which I overwintered and have cut back because they are too leggy. Your article says to put into vermiculite. Will potting soil work just as well? I remember my aunt used to root hers in a glass of water sitting on a window ledge, but I don’t know how long this took. I would like to have new plants by the end of May.

Potting soil will work. You can root them in water, but they have a higher success rate in vermiculite or potting soil.
