Thanks for the advice! I've got about a dozen stem cuttings in the rooting process now. Will update when I see progress

I present here the layman's propagation of P. Alba. Simply place all your leaves/cuttings in a ziploc bag with a bit of water and forget about it for a month. When you check again there will be several roots on your leaves and they should be reading for planting.

Is this the most effective propagation method? Probably not. Is it the easiest when propagating larger amounts? Seems so to me. Of 12 cuttings all but one have gotten substantial roots.

Whole p.viridis stems (15-20cm) with about 3-4 leaves cut in half and placed into rainwater outside.
All showing tremendous root growth in less than a month.

Looking good GM!
Ive got some large Psychotrias atm, I will probably have a go at this myself this week coming up. The DW06 I have grow so fast so could get a good few cuttings out of them I reckon

@sally
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

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!

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.

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

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.
