Propagating Morning Glory

Ask the Expert: morning glory
can you take a start and root it in water or can you only plant seeds? Sharon

Flower Shop Network‘s Plant Expert Reply:
It is possible , but a better way would be to layer a part of the stem that is attached to some leaves. Once the roots have formed you can cut it off of the parent plant.

To layer make a small wound on the stem and then cover with a small amount of soil. This will cause the plant to create new roots.

Of course, seeds are the best way to propagate morning glory. You can collect the seeds and germinate them at a later date. Store the seeds in your refrigerator vegetable crisper (place in a zip lock bag) until you are ready for them. When you are ready to germinate the seeds soak them in luke warm water for 24hrs. Then place in soil and keep moist until seeds germinate.
