When do Brugmansia flower?
Brugmansia flower all year round, but not as much in cooler weather, when growth slows. Brugmansia start producing flowers, above where they form a Y section in their branches. Our rooted plants are cuttings taken from above th Y, which means even though young plants, the plant will generally begin producing flowers relatively quickly. It's not uncommon to see a cutting less than 30cm in height, produce a flower that is bigger than the plant itself (see image).
Unrooted cuttings looking sickly?
No plant comes with a guarantee of success and this is obviously due to many different variables... from your own skills and know how, to growing conditions etc. Whilst brugmansia (unrooted cuttings) are very easy to propagate and we have exceptional feedback from customers with regards quality... from time to time losses are inevitable for everyone, myself included. Watch a video I've put together for some tips on how you might manage an unrooted cutting that appears to be struggling. Any information we provide, are suggestions for your consideration. You should do your own independent research to determine what works best for you in your growing environment. We do not provide a growing advice service, other than the information contained on our website.
