I have some ‘Electric Pink’ cordyline cuttings and I need information on getting them to root. I have pots and soil. Would rooting hormone help or should I treat them like Dracaenas? Any help is greatly appreciated.

They root pretty easy without rooting hormone just put the 10 to 12 in cuttings in soil. Using hormone won't hurt anything if you have it. The thing to remember is it can take a while before the plant has enough roots to grow.

Dracaena cuttings take a long time to root compared to Cordyline. Cordyline are much easier to root in soil and will grow roots in no time. Please post photos of your horticulture project for everyone to learn about Cordyline propagation.

Well, I finally got around to potting up my cuttings. I used E.B. Stone ‘Edna’s Best’ potting soil and put them in my 6x6 pop-up greenhouse. We’ll see what happens. 87121A14-0A96-454D-A46C-EFB327C9573D.jpeg 4634B445-2354-4CC4-A2E1-687212DA9DF7.jpeg 22D3E69A-84F4-4B3A-94D4-FC4DB74BA9C4.jpeg F64C109C-E4EC-4475-9F74-3B3530319888.jpeg 07502631-E097-466A-BC33-77D07644294D.jpeg

Yea! Burp your greenhouse daily with fresh air and get a humidity gadge and keep it in high 70s. What kind of lighting are you using? The containers need a warm spot that receives indirect sunlight. If no indirect sunlight then use 4 bulb fluorescent light. I get much better results under lights. Check out this rubber tree, I got these roots in 12 days using fluorescent lighting and RO water. A Lot of people say 10 to 12 weeks but I got them in two. Be sure to use only pure water on your cordyline propagation and not tap for best results. Good luck
