This is what I started with in October, possibly 18 or 20 cuttings. I had 6 or 7 'adult' plants that I had removed from the soil, pruned back & dried off/out & put into a paper bag.
Back in December I set up my 2 little mini grow-lights on a timer & arranged my poor, pathetic cuttings underneath. I watered them well & then we left on a month-long vacation in search of sunshine. By this time, I had already lost half the cuttings.
So, those were the cuttings from October. The 'adult' plants didn't fare so well - they completely died. Shriveled, rotten, dried up sticks with wirey bits of root... I did manage to find 2 plants with a very small bit of 'green' on them, so I potted them up & it looks like only 1 is managing to sprout some leaves. This one requires some serious TLC... Funny thing though, one of my hanging baskets did not get emptied in the fall - I just managed to haul it inside in December before we left on vacation & it had 2 geranium plants in it, as well as 2 small fushia plants that I thought I'd see what they'd do.
These are the fushias - doing very well after a small prune back in January. I had planted the other hanging basket fushias outside in October into a half barrel & just in an open spot in a new flower bed because they were still flowering. I checked on them a couple weeks ago - gave them a prune & it looks like they too are sprouting green shoots!! Wow - overwintering fushias?? And these are not the wild, hardy fushia bushes that also have growing around here. I wonder if these will flower again this year??
All in all - the geranium experiment was successful in that my scented geraniums survived as well as a few cuttings off the red geraniums.
