Mama's Resilient Geraniums

Pink GeranniumGeraniums are mama's kind of plants because they are resilient. Here are some facts:

1) Can be grown in almost any type of soil.
2) Can be grown indoors or outdoors.
3) Geraniums can be easily propagate from cuttings. To propagate, take a stem about 3 to 4 inches in length from the tip of the stem. Pull off the leaves to encourage easy saturation to the rooting medium. For an ideal medium for rooting cuttings, use perlite or sharp sand alone or mixed equally with sphagnum peat moss. Place the cuttings 1 inch deep in the medium and water thoroughly. Rooting occurs best with soil temperatures of 72 to 75 degrees F. This generally takes 3 to 4 weeks. Water sparingly during this rooting period. The trick to successful rooting is keep the cuttings fairly dry. When cuttings have rooted, place them in 4-inch pots.

Geranium as BudsAll those bashing posts about mom killing plants! I now will introduce her talented side. She has a green thumb with propagating Geraniums! A few years back she received her first Geranium from a friend and love it. One day, she took me to her deck out back and showed me this three feet flowering bush! I was just in shock! Now she has six bushes along her back fence, three in the front yard, and another three in pots. She has this thing about taking her plants outside and watering them religiously. She indeed found a soul mate because that is what Geraniums love.
