Greetings….new to the forum.
My name is Sandy, I am in the process of propagating 15 cuttings from a bougainvillea, that I intend to plant along one side of my property (along a fence)
I have started the cuttings in small pots using equal parts: washed sand, peat moss and vermiculite.
The cuttings are doing extremely well after about a month. I have each pot in an opaque produce bag from the supermarket, that recreates a small greenhouse.
My question to the experts, is as I begin to re-pot into larger vessels or pots, what medium should I use?
Should I use a regular commercial potting mix, like miracle grow? Or something else?
I want to re-pot in order to grow the cuttings to the point I won’t have to worry once I put them in the ground.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.!
Hi Sandy....since you are doing well with the cuttings, you can add a commercial triple mix to your potting mix as you repot to larger pots.
Let us know how it would be great!
