    I have never used a bag, they are fine just in compost under the bench or in a frame, just spray every so often.

    i do loads of cuttings, especially fuchsias they are all fine.

    You can keep it on until you see roots, but you need to take it off every couple of days and dry it thoroughly, or the cuttings may rot and the temperature in it may rise too high.

    You're effectively making a mini-propagator.

    Hollie, I have them under the greenhouse bench and leave the window open all night.

    i don't use rooting powder, but I think a lot of people do, I have tried both ways, no difference, 

    I prefer to do my fuchsia cuttings in water, that way you can put 3/4 in a little pot and see they root before planting up, saves space time and compost.

    i use the little pots that you get vitamins in. Or little yog pots.

    i did Bowles mauve and salvia hot lips last year, this year I am doing some penstemons as well.
