I really like her color. Plus her leaves seem really big, she's definitely a beauty.

If you have any questions, let us know here (like about the cutting you made).

yeah about the cutting...i made a cutting of my other salvia plant and the thing is it has been in the water for a week and a half but still no signs of root growing...is that normal? does anybody have a suggestion?

Wait another week and a half? How does the cutting look? Has it wilted? Are you keeping it in a humidity dome? I'm somewhat mystified by the whole process myself. I'd have to say I've been much more successful at killing various cuttings than I have been at killing my Salvia plants.

Well, since the leaves haven't wilted I suspect they are getting enough moisture to survive. I can't tell from the photos how far below the lowest node you cut the stem. It looks like a fairly thick stem. It does not appear to me that you cut it diagonally and I believe a diagonal cut may help the rooting process. Hopefully Boolie will check-in and offer more comments. I've about reached the end of my repertoire. It does look like overall it is coping very well. . . . so don't change anything on account of my random, newbie comments. All I am sure of is that you've done a much better job of it than I would have!

you got to root it directly in soil --- inside a humidity room,

probably it will root in water too, but you have to use an economic white light bulb, something like this

or this

but you need white light not yellow and temp at 20 celsius, and no direct sun , and maybe it will work ,

once i saved mine like that -it was so cold that winter i remembered

anyway--i would go for the soil method

Awesome! Ok, so, just to clarify, gstauber, what did you do to get it to grow successfully? Simply transplant it into soil? What sort of mix? Pot size? Anything else you can think of? What environmental conditions is it living in (temperature & humidity)?
