    Hi All.
    I am Going to take some cuttings from fuchsia triphylla koralle. Cannot see much on taking triphylla cuttings on the web so I presume it is the same as taking normal cuttings which I have done loads of times over the years but never triphylla.


    I did read that if you do take a cutting make it longer than a normal fuchsia cutting as the stem below soil will hopefully produce more growth??


    Another thing I did notice is that normally when you take a fuchsia cutting it is basically has just one stem with one growing tip unless of course you take a leaf or just a tip cutting.


    On the koralle I have noticed some that have just the one stem and tip while other have one main stem and 3-4 separate stems growing from the one main stem.

    Is there any preference if you take a single of multiple stem as a cutting?? I have taken a photo below of one of the multi stems that I could take as a cutting.
    Thanks for any advice.

    I've only grown Thallia of this type, I'm not really a fuchsia grower as such.:smile:

    But I usually take cuttings in spring from new growth, or a couple of months ago, to overwinter.
    Usually try to find a non flowering shoot with the leaves in threes around the stem.
    You get a bushier plant that way.:smile:
