I also have an orphan cutting I placed in-ground (direct plant method). So far it is alive and sprouting a few small leaves and buds but thatís about it...if it grows enough for me to take some cuttings from it Iíll be happy to share them in the Fall.
Iíve found the best success rate with direct planting though I dunno the actual percent offhand. However, Iím not really thrilled with the amount of growth coming from those cuttings which were direct-planted. Itís been hot and sunny with plenty of rain so I donít see why these guys are growing at such a glacial pace. Of the surviving cuttings which I started indoors using DE or JSacís method, many of them have already graduated from cups to 1/2 gal. pots and put on 6-8Ē growth.
