high all!
for educational purposes here i come here with a small grow log, from when my cuttings arrived.
the cuttings in the pictures have spent 14 days inside a cushioned envelope and came out without a sign of rot, but without a standing leaf.
at first i thought they wouldn't make it as i put them into glasses of water. i don't really know why, but after a few days i decided i would root them in soil and so i did. i also made some cuttings out of the larger ones and planted on soil and started to apply rooting hormones.
i don't really remember the frequence of the pictures but my guess is that they're about a week apart if not two weeks, it was winter over here and sally was growing very slowly, recovering from the trip and adapting to a new envoirment.

totally naked!


some leaves...


branches!


and so on...


and on...


and on!


i like to simply detach (twist) new suckers from cuttings (new branches) and root in soil, i notice they root optimum when they're about a couple inches long more or less.
it is very sensitive to overwatering but easy to take care in general... keep them under light/mid shade...
these plants are very sensitive to the care you give to them. if you pick one more leaf than she allows you to, she will sure wilt and scare you to death, but recover soon (if you don't keep on watering it, which is a common mistake).
i am also trying to plant outdoors, which seems best, if the climate allows where you live.
good growing...

I normally always strip a plant that i use for cuttings down to a stalk that eventually pushes out new shoots for more cuttings. The stem is highly laiden with chlorophyll and still produces new shoots. It's great!

for them to get tall you'll need a nice ammount of substrate, the best would be outdoors. i don't know very much about fertilizants i mostly use home made compost...
anyone there has a hint for ninja?

Wow Felixhigh, it seems like you gave her a whole lot of love! She looks very happy and healthy with you. Great work.

ninja: I've heard that the normal comercial fertilizers for houseplants work well, but just don't use it too much. The best way to get big strong plants, in my opinion, is to use a very big pot with good soil in it. And don't transplant too much because of the time she needs for adaptation.

Salvia D. likes slightly acidic soil.

Miracid works very nicely. Just don't over do it.

jojoba: that's right, they don't like too much sun. mine outdoor ones have almost turned themselves into columnar cacti because they've not really been able to have much leaves in the summer (hottest summer in the last 30 yrs here in south america)...
they've survived many days at more than a hundred fairenheit degrees but shaded by the surrounding plants (coleus, etc)...
as they were resisting well (despite the lack of leaves), i left them where they were. now lets see those bastards grow till next summer...
