Making Sceletium tortuosum cuttings.
    #1057850 - 11/16/02 11:33 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I have a kanna plant that I would like to try and make a cutting from. I was wondering if the plant would send out side shoots if I cut off the growing tip. I would imagine it would but it took so long to get one started from seed that I don't want to kill it.I want to get at least three or four established from this one plant if possible. I've "Cloned" plenty of other plants,so I know the procedure...Anyone have any experience here with Kanna?

I dont have firsthand experience with this but........

"I take about a 3-4 noded cutting (6-8cm) which can either be a soft green stem segment or a harder segment.
Remove the lower leaves that go into the soil (carefully, as removing the leaves can break the stem) and water in. leave for a few weeks under shade cloth in not too warm an area and they should have roots. If they wilt, remove to a cooler shadier area. They tend to wilt a bit out of the shock or the cutting process anyway.
I suspect they are very similar in growth characteristics to the aussie local pigface plants and so should root easily without root hormone powder, but I use it just in case for my cuttings.

Sandy soil or cactus soil work fine for them."

  Good luck! :grin:
