3. Can you grow Teucrium from a cutting?

eucrium can be grown from a cutting. This is a relatively easy and rewarding way to propagate this versatile plant. Here are the steps on how to grow Teucrium from a cutting:

  1. Take cuttings in the spring or summer. This is when the plants are actively growing and are most likely to root successfully.
  2. Choose healthy stems. Select stems that are about 4-6 inches long and have at least two nodes (the points where the leaves grow from the stem).
  3. Make a clean cut just below a node. Use a sharp knife or pruning shears to make a clean cut just below a node on the stem.
  4. Remove the leaves from the bottom half of the cutting. This will help to reduce water loss and prevent the leaves from rotting.
  5. Dip the cut end of the cutting in rooting hormone. This will encourage the cutting to root.
  6. Plant the cutting in a pot of well-draining potting mix. Make a hole in the potting mix and insert the cutting, making sure that the bottom node is covered with soil.
  7. Water the pot thoroughly. Keep the soil moist but not soggy.
  8. Place the pot in a warm, bright location. A window sill or greenhouse is a good choice.
  9. Monitor the cutting for roots. It will take several weeks for the cutting to root. You can check for roots by gently tugging on the cutting. If it resists, it has rooted.
