Greetings, im looking for advice on rooting softwood cuttings of chali, currently the cutting is in a 50/50 mix of perlite and sphagum moss in a large ziplock bag, wetted with hydrogen peroxide to prevent mold.

The lower part of the stem where the cut end is does not have a node present and has turned a lighter brown color presumable being bleached from the hydrogen peroxide, im not sure ifthis is an okay sign or if i should be using spring water instead. No fungal contamination is present but the last two large leaves appear to be starting to yellow and may drop soon.

Should i have it in a soil substrate such as this? Or would a glass of water be better? Any experience with hydrogen peroxide? And how long is the rooting time? Been sitting for around 3 weeks now

Some things I would try, when the flower or buds fail, is to increase light exposure and increase phosphorus.

Looks outdoor, can you cut anything overhead for more light?

Some buds have started to split open and turn brown/grey. Still not too sure what is causing this. I would have expected at least one bud from all the hundreds on various plants to fully develop into a flower.

Ive done it with Psychotria 'Nexus' before. Just left in a cup of water inside a bag for humidity. The cutting actually started flowering whilst it was in there and rooting at the same time!

Ive currently got some Psychotria 'DW06' stem cuttings in water, ive not got these in a bag this time as I ran out, however they seem to be doing fine like this and its not seeming necessary for them to be in one.

Ive tried stem cuttings of Psychotria kirkii, probably 3 or 4 with each of these methods - water rooting like above, rooting in soil and rooting in Sphagnum moss. I only had 1 cutting which rooted and that was in soil. Very tricky to root in my experience.

Im pretty it'll work the same with Nexus - it is a psychotria hybrid so can't see why not.

Propagation of Psychotrias via stem cuttings interests me greatly!! Does anyone know and/or have experience with propagating other psychotrias via stem cutting? I want to try this out with my P. Nexus.

if you're planning to plant them outside.. it depends on what climate zone your in,
if they are growing in the right climate, they pretty much take care of themselves.

bulb plants are very care free, such as tulips, daylilly, spiderlilly, crocus..
fruit trees usually have nice flowers, cherry, plum, orange, peach, etc.
banana bush tree, Magnolia figo, smells amazing from 100 yards away,
many cacti have pretty flowers, but it will take some time to grow them.

i'd say go to a local nursery, garden center, or check out online suppliers.

They look fantastic! Doing really well for how long you've been propagating them.
Funnily enough I was sorting out my Psychotria leaves today too!

Gave the takeaway Tek a whirl and I must say I'm impressed.Put my leaves (cut in half-tops and bottom) in a coir/verm mix on the 26/2 and yesterday took a look and they bursting with roots!! Decided to put into small pots today before they get a little difficult to separate - I noticed slightly more root growth the tops that I cracked the mid rib a couple times slightly above the cut
Great Tek for leaf propagation
Highly recommend
