By using rooting powder and starting them in moist peat moss, I produced a dozen healthy scented geranium plants from the cuttings when I cut back the original plant.
If you haven't tried rooting powder for starting cuttings, I highly recommend buying a bottle and keeping it on hand. One container will last for years without losing its effectiveness and is ideal for those hard-to-root plants.
How to Use Rooting Powder to Root Cuttings
Cuttings typically form roots within a few weeks, but the amount of time depends on the type of plant you are rooting. Leaves should remain green and appear healthy.
There are many brands of rooting powder available, but I have had good luck with the Schultz "Take Root".
